Park Hills Drainageway Project Update

Township Awarded Consumptive Use Mitigation Grant
Park Hills Drainageway Project

The Park Hills Drainageway Project has gone out to bid and work is anticipated to begin by the end of the year.

The Park Hills Drainageway Project is an undertaking by the Ferguson Township Public Works Department to manage stormwater going into the Park Hills Stream stretching from Devonshire Drive to Park Hills Park. The scope of the project includes stormwater management, erosion control, improvement of utilities in the drainageway, and tree preservation.

Ferguson Township staff are devoted to seeking out and applying for sources of funding which help offset the costs of improvement projects such as this one. In 2021, Ferguson Township staff secured a grant of $200,000 from the National Fish and Wildlife Fund and in April of 2023, another $500,000 was awarded through the Consumptive Use Mitigation Grant offered by the Susquehanna River Basin Commission. Funds from both grants will be used to pursue implementation of the Park Hills Drainageway Project.

This project's completion is expected by mid-2025.
