Capisic Brook Survey Project Begins Week of April 23


The City of Portland and surrounding municipalities have been impacted by the recent preliminary release of proposed flood maps revisions prepared for FEMA. During the review of the proposed flood maps it was determined that many of the culverts and bridges over the brook that have been improved over the past 20 years these improvements were not incorporated in the proposed flood maps.

Based on this the City Office Emergency Management and Department of Public Works - Water Resources are working together to conduct a study of Capisic Brook. 

As part of the proposed study surveying of the Capisic Brook will be undertaken this spring, starting the week of April 23. The survey crew will be walking along the stream channel and parking their cars near the various bridges, culverts and other structures involved in the survey

Stream channel survey work will begin at the confluence of Capisic Brook and Fore River extending up to the terminus of each tributary to the Capisic Brook. The tributaries terminate at Campbell Road, Riverside Court and Exit 8 on Maine Turnpike, near Holms Avenue and Birchwood Drive Intersection, Ludlow Terrace and Ludlow Street intersection, Ludlow Street intersection with Candlewyck Road and Four Winds Road, around Evergreen Cemetery to Mayfield Street, crossing Warren Avenue, past Mt Sinai Cemetery, extending out to Rudy Lane and Carriage Lane/Goodridge Avenue. 

The culverts and bridges at Capisic Street, Capisic Pond Dam, Lucas Street, Brighton Avenue, Violette Hill Dennett Street, Warwick Street, Sunset Lane, Railroad Culvert by Warren, Warren Avenue, Taft Avenue, Holms Avenue, and Maine Turnpike. The storm water outlet by Dorothy Street, storm drain inlet by Princeton Pines and Forest Avenue and railroad storm drain crossing between Rudy and Broadway.
