The City of Anderson has experienced a variety of maintenance problems with older portions of its infrastructure in portions of the Old North Anderson community. This neighborhood was established in the 1930's and built out surrounding the historic North Anderson Elementary School, now the Adult Education Center.

Stormwater piping buried along the median of Hunter Drive comprises the eastern fork tributary to Whitner Creek, and has experienced erosion and other maintenance problems dating to at least 50 years ago. This tributary was piped many decades ago to alleviate these problems. Over time washouts and sink holes have developed along this stormwater pipe system that extends along Hunter Drive from James Street to Glenwood Avenue.

The stormwater portion of the project includes the replacement of a 48-inch dilapidated corrugated metal pipe. The project also utilized HDPE slip-lining for 300 feet of deteriorated pipe. The project also included major asphalt surface restoration for two dual-sided residential streets.

With the completion this problem stormwater area will be eliminated and the City will be allowed to focus its resources in other areas. The residents will no longer have to deal with flooding.
