Town of Utica Funding

September 12, 2019.  The James River Water Development District awarded $16,500 to the Town of Utica for drainage issues.  The Town has had flooding issues in the past few years due to sediment build up in culverts which was amplified with this year’s flooding.  Cleaning of the ditches and culverts will address concerns such as the discharge of sediment and debris into a stream or storm water drainage system and altered flows, flooding, or washout of roads due to plugged culverts.
