The purpose of this project is to:

    • Identify when, where and why flooding is occurring along Chester Creek.
    • Develop a report that presents alternatives to solve the flooding issues in the project area.
    • Provide cost estimates and recommend next steps in flood mitigation.

The Chester Creek Flooding project area includes properties within or adjacent to the mapped flood zones of Chester Creek, from A Street to the outlet of Westchester Lagoon.
