These project improve pipes, streams, and lakes that carry stormwater into the Neuse River. Our goal is to reduce flooding to homes/streets and protect the watershed.
Projects are chosen based on the following requirements.
|Location (City street or private property)||Flooding|
|Public safety||Water quality benefits|
|Mandated by state or federal law||Streambank erosion|
|Lakes||Prevents flooding damage to roads and buildings downstream; improves water quality. Projects are on public and private property.|
|Stormwater System||Prevents flooding damages caused by stormwater runoff coming from public streets. We also maintain/repair the system.|
|Streams||Reduced impacts from sediment and other water pollution. These projects are typically on City properties. Work on private property is through the Drainage Assistance Program.|
|Bridges||Work is completed on bridges over creeks when the structure is unsafe to travel on or affecting the stream.|
These projects make streets safer for residents. And, easier for first responders to navigate streets during emergencies. They also reduce future costs from flooding damages caused by heavy rainfall.
