Flood Mitigation Projects
When County Executive Ball took office, there were already several projects underway that will increase the watershed's retention capacity and will improve water conveyance. With the exception of the construction and design of the Lower Main Street open space, these upstream projects already in the pipeline are continuing to move forward as scheduled at this time.
County Executive Calvin Ball selected a plan for flood mitigation that preserves six of the 10 buildings previously scheduled for demolition and takes more potential flood water off of Main Street during severe weather events. This map shows the entirety of the projects that were considered for flood mitigation, including the projects included in the county executive's flood mitigation plan.
