OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
The proposed project focuses on drainage improvements along North Second Street.. Currently, without the appropriate drainage system, stormwater flows onto Main Street and enters numerous businesses. The project will add a gutter system and a grate to capture this water before the water reaches Main Street. The project also provides for street resurfacing subsequent to the drainage improvements.
Engineering reports identify this area as a significant contributor to the flooding of downtown businesses. This project will complement ongoing projects (funded by the City, and totaling more than $750,000) to reduce the flow and accumulation of stormwater onto Main Street.
The poverty rate for persons living in Marietta is 25.2%, more than 39 percent greater than the poverty level across the entire state of Oklahoma. Flooding of buildings in this area negatively impacts economic development, resulting in fewer businesses and taxable sales, therefore, limiting the funds available to the City to provide services to residents.
Project performance will be measured by the reduction of the occurrences and amount of stormwater entering downtown businesses. Data will be collected regarding the number of newly established businesses are a result of the proper diversion of stromwater.
