​Lilly ​Mill Storm Drainage Improvement Project

Project is in the construction phase.

​Latest ​News


Park Road has two new pedestrian refuges between Park South Drive and Sharon Road! When crossing the street, refuges provide pedestrians the opportunity to stop safely in the center turn lane and cross one direction of traffic at a time. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services collaborated with Charlotte Department of Transportation on this new roadway feature. 

The contractor has completed most of the work on Park Road and will soon focus on the remaining sanitary sewer crossings. Sanitary sewer lines often cross streams posing a threat to water quality. Since several of the crossings were at the end of their useful life, Charlotte Water and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services collaborated on making repairs where needed to proactively prevent sanitary sewer spills in our waterways.


The Sunnyvale/Chandworth Storm Drainage Improvement Project, with a drainage area of 640 acres, was broken down into three smaller projects: Lilly Mill, Chandworth and Tattersall.

The Lilly Mill Storm Drainage Improvement Project will reduce street and structure flooding throughout the neighborhood and address stream erosion to provide a more natural, stable stream system.  Located within a drainage area of approximately 100 acres, the project will replace and/or rehabilitate aging infrastructure and provide adequate drainage system capacity.

Estimated Cost: $11,800,000​*

*includes all costs associated with this project such as planning and design, utility relocation, consultant fees, permits, construction, and landscaping.

The project team will manage the project through several phases. Specific work is conducted during each phase and public involvement is emphasized throughout the process. Learn more about project phases.
