City of Clarion CIP

Clarion, IA | Public Works


ISG worked with the City of Clarion to develop a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) with key infrastructure improvements and has led planning and design to bring them to fruition.


With previous flooding issues and the need for reassess its existing infrastructure, the City of Clarion needed a wide range of engineering expertise, as well as a Capital Improvement Plan to make key projects happen.


ISG developed a CIP for the City of Clarion, and also provided design and engineering solutions for the following projects identified as part of that planning process.

Stormwater Drainage Study
Large rainfall events resulted in flooding that caused substantial hazards and serious problems for Clarion’s residents. An analysis of the storm sewer system was conducted by ISG, and solutions were recommended to serve three distinct areas through a combination of detention basins, storm sewer improvements, and downstream drainage ditch improvements. The solutions provide relief from future rain events in Clarion and surrounding areas.

Water Main Improvement Design Planning
With little time to spare before the City’s Low to Moderate (LMI) study expired, ISG developed a Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) submittal analyzing the need for water main improvements to the existing system. Understanding that an expedited schedule was critical to capitalizing on the existing LMI study, ISG completed all services in a month’s time.
