Stormwater Master Plan
The purpose of this study was to review the drainage infrastructure as a system, to develop a systemic approach to address stormwater issues as well develop a strategy that moves from a reactionary repair to a systematic plan for maintenance. The completed Stormwater Master plan includes a prioritized list of long-term capital improvement projects, for an estimated cost of $6,295,900, which includes developing a GIS database, stormwater modeling, stream assessments, and a list of stormwater infrastructure improvements projects. Part of this stormwater master plan is an audit of the stormwater utility assessment program which was also completed. The purpose of this audit was to determine if the stormwater utility rates to all properties were appropriately assigned and assessed, based on Equivalent Residential Units (ERU) according to the City’s stormwater ordinance.
