The City of Fitchburg is requesting proposals from qualified consultants to perform a comprehensive drainage study to identify and assess the feasibility of various solutions to improve flood concerns north of Dunn’s Marsh, assess permitting feasibility, prepare cost estimates, and conduct public outreach meetings.
An RFP was issued in the Fall of 2021 to solicit engineering firms to provide the above services. A link to the RFP document is provided below:

The City has contracted with AE2S to complete the Seminole Glen Stormwater Study. Common Council approved the contract on August 09, 2022. The study is expected to continue into early 2023. Up to two public meetings will be held to gather public input on the background of the problems identified and the proposed recommendations.
The consulting team has been provided all currently available data and additional data collection is underway to assist with development of the stormwater models. This project utilized the stormwater model developed by the City of Madison for their Dunn's Marsh Watershed Study. Within that model the City of Fitchburg areas draining to Dunn's Marsh were included, but at a lower level of detail. AE2S added additional detail to the models including storm sewers, topography, and subwatershed areas within the City of Fitchburg limits.
Existing Conditions modeling has been completed
