Comprehensive Storm Water Master Plan (CSWMP)


The purpose and goal of the CSWMP is to develop an updated GIS inventory of closed drainage systems (excluding streams and open channels), condition and capacity analysis of systems not previously studied, and a program approach to mitigating storm water hazards for the entire City. The project and study is expected to be completed in three years and would serve as an extension of the 2008 Master Drainage Study, which focused on floodplain mapping of open channels and the improvement of undersized roadway culverts.

The CSWMP will include a comprehensive inventory of existing data, accurate simulation, flooding problem area identification, and flood mitigation solutions. Once relevant data has been gathered and analyzed, a drainage Capital Improvement Project (CIP) plan, including costs and potential funding mechanisms, will be developed to address flooding issues.

An important component of the data-gathering process will be soliciting feedback from members of the community which may have been directly affected by flooding events or who may live near flood prone areas. A link to a questionnaire appears on the website and feedback from the public is welcomed and necessary for the success and effectiveness of this master plan. There will also be opportunities throughout the three-year process for the public involvement and input.
