Regional Detention Feasibility Study
2013 Multi-functional Stormwater Siting Analysis
The City contracted with Watearth, Inc. to conduct a preliminary assessment for siting regional storm water facilities-the report is available online by clicking here. The primary emphasis of the analysis was flood control or detention ranking for effectiveness, based on the location of various possible sites in the watersheds. The intent for this assessment was to provide preliminary guidance and considerations for future projects and to identify possible opportunities for larger regional facilities that serve multiple properties which may yield greater impacts and efficiencies - whether publically or privately initiated.
This effort also factored additional considerations in the ranking parameters which include: water quality/wetlands, redevelopment, hydrology model availability, existing drainage problems, trail connectivity, park amenity, city-owned/private land, and anticipated costs. The complete ranking table is provided in Appendix D of the report with an abbreviated summary provided above.
