Reducing Flood Risks in Older, Established Neighborhoods – Master Planning and Detention
Reducing flood risk in older, established neighborhoods that were designed to less-stringent criteria than common today can be challenging. Developing a clear understanding of the existing conditions is key. Outside-the-box thinking can also be critical to developing cost-effective solutions.
Join us as we examine master-planning efforts, discuss underground detention design and display time-lapsed construction videos for a flood-relief project in University Park, Texas. The webinar will also address project management and project delivery alternatives from the City Engineer’s perspective.
- Gain insight on issues related to master planning in established neighborhoods.
- Learn the key factors to success in underground detention.
- Review design considerations for underground stormwater detention facilities and learn how to solve site constraints while maximizing potential land use.
- Assess project management and project delivery methods from a city perspective.
