Bigfork to Hear Stormwater Recommendations

By Beacon Staff

The Bigfork community has a chance to hear and comment on the stormwater drainage system tonight. At 7 p.m. at the Community United Methodist Church on upper Electric Avenue an engineering firm will present its report.

Morrison-Maierle Inc. will point out the problems it identified in the system, issue recommendations for upgrades, and outline the potential cost.

Flathead County currently plans to apply for grants from the Treasure State Endowment Program and Department of Natural Resources and Conservation. Bigfork’s Stormwater Advisory Board says the more public input and support the county can show, the better it looks to granting agencies.

Bigfork’s stormwater drainage system is a bit of a mystery. There are no records documenting the initial installation of the system. Morrison-Maierle Inc. was hired by the county last November to study the system, and make recommendations.
