Gazo Avenue Outfall Repair Project

The City of Burlington contracted with Courtland Construction to complete a repair of an eroded stormwater outfall off of Gazo Avenue.  Work for this project started in the middle of July and was substantialy complete by September 2017.

The project included the following tasks:

  • Clearing of vegetation,
  • Installation of a temporary flow bypass for the stormwater baseflow currently in the outfall channel,
  • Installation of a new outfall structure,
  • Backfilling of the channelized area with clean fill,
  • Grading of the fill material,
  • Installation of stabilization measures while vegetation is re-established.

An overview of the project area can be found here: Gazo Overview.pdf  (Note: Landowner names have been redacted for their privacy.)

In addition to the outfall repair work, the City of Burlington contracted with the University of Vermont's Spatial Analysis Laboratory to obtain drone footage of the channel before and after construction occurred.  The inital flight occurred after the contractor had mobilized and started work (see you tube video here).  The final flight occurred after construction was completed (see you tube video here).
