Abstract: This Environmental Assessment (EA) addresses the potential environmental impacts of the proposed drainage infrastructure restoration and reconstruction work in one specific open drain segment in the Red Run Inter-county Drain in Macomb County and in three (3) combined sewer overflow drains (CSOs), being the Red Run Branch of the Royal Oak Drain and the Schubiner and Shaberman Drains located in Oakland County, Michigan. The purpose of the proposed work is to ensure adequate capacity for proper combined storm and sewer water drainage and reduction of erosion within the Red Run Inter-county Drain. Waters collected within these and several other designated drains discharge into the George W. Kuhn Retention Treatment Facility. After treatment, the collected storm waters discharge to the Red Run Inter-county Drain which is located in both Oakland and Macomb County. A substantial bank slump has occurred on the northern bank of the Red Run Intercounty Drain between Ryan and Dequindre Roads resulting in the discharge of sediment to the drain and exposed earth that will continue to erode. The CSOs have deteriorated segments within the underground pipe drains that allow for the infiltration of clean groundwater that gets treated and takes up treatment capacity within the Kuhn facility. Implementing the proposed work would reduce and control the most severe erosion in the open drain and groundwater infiltration within the CSOs.
