The City of Maryville will be conducting a stream survey and inventory of stormwater discharge within the Maryville city limits. This survey includes portions of the Brown Creek, Culton Creek, Duncan Branch, Gallagher Creek, Lackey Creek, Laurel Bank Branch, Peppermint Branch, Pistol Creek, and Springfield Branch watersheds. This assessment is one of the requirements to allow Maryville to obtain its National Pollution Discharge Elimination System Phase II permit. The goal of this project is to gain a better understanding of the health of Maryville’s streams. Areas that may benefit from stream restoration or stormwater infrastructure repair will also be identified.
The city has contracted with Civil & Environmental Consultants, Inc. (CEC) to perform the fieldwork for this study. CEC environmental scientists will be traversing all the major streams to photograph and document their condition. Streambank erosion sites, undercut pipes, unshaded stream sections, trash dumps, and other areas of environmental concern will be assessed. Field staff will only record the condition of the streams. They are not present to remedy or address any potential problems.

The City of Maryville is working with the Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) and Applied Pavement Technology, Inc. (APTech) to perform pavement condition assessments and inspection work. This work began on October 25. The project will wrap up by the end of December 2021. Using advanced pavement testing tools, APTech will assess the conditions of the roads in Maryville and Blount County to identify the streets most in need of repairs. The city will then use the collected data to develop multi-year maintenance and rehabilitation plans.
“Everyday traffic and weather have a significant impact on our roads; identifying and measuring pavement conditions now will help us avoid bigger issues on our roadway network in the future,” said Brian Boone, Director of Engineering and Public Works for the City of Maryville. “This project with APTech will help us make informed, data-driven decisions when planning our roadway maintenance and repair schedules for the coming years.”
APTech uses state-of-the-art equipment to safely assess roadway conditions without any impact to the driving public. Citizens can expect to see an APTech van equipped with specialized technology traveling the Maryville area streets. The van will be collecting information about street conditions. APTech’s van will follow all posted traffic signs and display a warning beacon so drivers and pedestrians do not encounter any driving impacts.
The data collection project schedule is subject to change due to timing of other utility projects, weather, special events, and any unforeseen circumstances.
