Drainage improvement projects are needed to mitigate neighborhood flooding problems which impact
yards, buildings, and roads. Drainage projects are funded through the Stormwater Utility. The
projects are identified by staff from several divisions, technical advisory groups and citizens.
A list of several projects is approved by County Council based on critical need and available funding.
Designs are managed by the land development division and construction contracts are awarded through
competitive bidding and inspected by staff inspectors. At the present time, projects are generally
limited to neighborhood drainage systems and small off-line regional detention basins. Future projects
involving creek channel improvements, floodproofing, and large on-line regional detention projects
may require additional funding sources.
