The Storm Drainage System Assessment and Capital Improvement Program prepared for the Town of Addison by Halff Associates in August 2017 identified improvements that are needed in the Rawhide Creek Drainage Basin.

This project includes the design of drainage improvements along the residential streets of Waterside Court, Waterford Drive, Les Lacs Avenue, Beau Park Lane, and Brookwood Lane. The drainage improvements will follow the trail south from Brookwood Lane and run west along the linear park connecting to the existing storm drain system at Marsh Lane.
