Westlake Engineering Dept. recognized for Dover Ditch Basin project
The City of Westlake's Engineering Department received an award from the American Council of Engineering Companies this summer for its work on the Dover Ditch Basin.
The project took more than 100 residents out of the flood plain in Westlake and North Olmsted.
The project lowered the 100-Year Floodplain 30 inches, which eliminated the need for flood insurance for homes in the Bretton Woods development and elsewhere.
Numerous organizations contributed to the project’s execution, which entailed nearly 10 years of planning and labor.
