Billow Street/Arc Street Drainage Project
In 2014, the South Carolina Department of Transportation and the Town implemented the first phase of a drainage plan in this area. Crossdrains were installed across Palmetto Boulevard and positive flow drainage was established to the outfall at the end of Billow Street. However, to improve drainage, ditches were deepened. Phase II of this project is to determine additional improvements to drainage in this area which may include installation of pipes. If so, plans will be made to implement improvements to the ditches in the area.
