During high tides S. Maritana Drive is flooded with sea water. The depth of the water is 8 to ten inches. The existing pipes located in the seawall allow sea water from the canal to flow onto Maritana Dr. as well as on to Roads through this neighborhood. Additionally, throughout this neighborhood there are sections of seawall missing and in disrepair that allow sea water (at high tide) to inundate the roads throughout the neighborhood. This has been an ongoing problem and is not being addressed. Although the roads through the neighborhood were recently resurfaced, the frequent sea water inundation of these roads will undermine the recent repairs here if existing drainage conditions remain.
How was the elevation that the pipes in the seawall were installed determined? It appears that the invert of the existing pipe in the seawall is set lower than the roadway elevation. Has there been a flood study of this area? If so would it be possible for me to take a look at it?
