Planning

We are identifying ways to improve the Hare Snipe watershed in northwest Raleigh. We will be making improvements in this area by:

  • Reducing flooding impacts with upgraded stormwater pipes; 
  • Improving water quality; and, 
  • Repairing streambanks (or riparian area). 

During this process, we will be collecting input from the community. More details coming soon.

Right now, the consultant is using meters to track how much water flows in the watershed and what areas flood. This will help us determine what upgrades can be made to streams and stormwater pipes. The consultant will be tracking water flow through mid-July.
