  • To conduct the first comprehensive area drainage study since 1993.
  • Identify, quantify and document known and potential flooding hazards based on the impact of development in the area since 1993.
  • Review the current FEMA floodplain delineations using updated rainfall data, more detailed topographic aerial mapping and the latest scientific computer modeling.
  • Determine the need, based on the identified flooding hazards, for the future development of an area drainage master plan.
