Recently Completed Projects

Dover Ditch Basin ProjectDover Ditch Basin Restoration Project

The City of Westlake recently completed the Dover Ditch Stream Restoration Project. This project added an additional 2 million cubic feet of retention in the Dover Ditch Corridor. In doing so, we were able to reduce the flood plain in many neighborhoods. 


Therefore, on behalf of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Engineering Department provided a PDF copy of the the revised FEMA map and has provided a link to a GIS FEMA Map detailing how the impact of the project on the neighborhood. The original hard copy of the Letter of Map Revision (LOMR), dated June 17, 2020, is on file in the Engineering Department. This electronic copy is available for your information. 

Engineering Award for Dover Ditch Basin Project

The project took more than a hundred residents out of the flood plain in Westlake and North Olmsted. The project lowered the 100-Year Floodplain 30 inches, which eliminated the need for flood insurance for homes in the Bretton Woods development and elsewhere. Numerous organizations contributed to the project’s execution, including the Westlake Watershed Group, the Cuyahoga County Department of Health, the Soil and Water Conservation District and Metro Health Hospital. The project entailed nearly 10 years of planning and labor.

The Engineering Department received an award from the American Council of Engineering Companies for its work on the project.

Clague Park Pool 

This $7,500,000 project was awarded to Seitz Builders, Inc. and consists of the removal of the existing pool at Clague Park and the construction of a new state of the art Family Aquatic Center. 

It won't be long until residents can have leisurely days swimming at the new Clague Park pool featuring five distinct bodies of water.  This transformation of the former outdoor pool to the new state of the art aquatic center is well under way with only the freshly painted water slides remaining from the former pool.  The new bathhouse and fully equipped concession stand buildings have been constructed with the exterior face brick being installed and interior finishes to follow.  All the pool walls have been completed allowing one to see the shear vast size of the new site with 21,000 square feet of fun and exciting pool surface to be enjoyed on hot summer days compared to the 11,000 square feet of the former pool.

Update:  Pool is now opened! Visit our Recreation Dept web page for details.
