Interim repair efforts in the Pleasant Valley ditch along 31st Street were completed in May. According to Ryan Phipps of City Engineering, the final project expense was $350,000. The contractor was DRX Enterprises. The photo above shows a DRX crew in the ditch just north of Water Street. The work was separate from an ongoing study of long-range Camp Creek improvements.
