Waukee Public Library Stormwater Improvements Project

Crews are continuing to make progress on the Waukee Public Library stormwater improvements. Paving of the new parking lot continued with the installation of permeable pavers this week. All remaining paving is expected to be completed in the next two weeks. Construction of the 13 bioretention cells around the property is expected to begin soon. Crews hope to finish out the project ahead of schedule yet this fall!

Curbside services and returns have shifted to the south side of the building. Returns can be dropped through the dropboxes 24/7. However, oversize items will only be accepted during curbside service hours.
