Planning

We are evaluating possible infrastructure to mitigate flooding of the apartments located on Dana Drive. The flooding that took place in October 2021, increased attention to the area and refocused attention on the floodplain and possible improvements to the downstream flooding source (Walnut Creek) to reduce flooding.  Improvements to the Walnut Creek channel will be evaluated on a cost vs benefit basis and any action taken will need to show a significant reduction in flood elevations.
