Watertown to hire engineering firm to address stormwater issues delaying Renzi Foodservice expansion

WATERTOWN — The city will take the next step in resolving stormwater runoff issues that have caused headaches for the expansion at the Renzi Foodservice facility in the City Center Industrial Park on South Bellew Avenue.

Tonight, the City Council is expected to retain the Watertown engineering firm Aubertine and Currier to complete design work to resolve the stormwater runoff issues that will allow Renzi to resume its expansion project.

Aubertine and Currier, responding to a request for proposals from the city, would be paid $13,090 for the engineering work.

For more than a year, the expansion plans at the industrial park were put on hold because of wetlands concerns from the state Department of Environmental Conservation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Renzi officials blamed those wetland issues on excess flow from the city’s stormwater system in the industrial park.

The company plans to build a 38,176-square-foot addition to create more warehouse space.

Once the deign work is finished, the city will use $200,000 of its American Rescue Plan Act funding to pay for upgrades to two storm sewer outfalls on the Renzi property.
