Deer Creek Flood Mitigation

Stormwater flooding has inundated the area along Deer Creek between Hanley Road and South Brentwood Boulevard 26 times since 1957, creating significant public safety issues and causing property damage. The Deer Creek Flood Mitigation project includes the planning, design and construction of improvements to the Deer Creek channel and floodplain to alleviate ongoing flooding problems and protect properties from frequent flooding. These updates will also provide a greater opportunity for businesses to move to the area.
