  • Water Quality Issues (NDEP)

Floodplain Impacts

  • Floodplain Impacts

    • Alignment is at low point in Eagle Valley (45 sq. mi. watershed, 100-Year = 10,000 cfs
    • FEMA Floodplains / Floodways

Freeway Design Effort

  • NDOT Begins Design in 1994

  • Recognized the necessity for complimentary City and State designs

  • Carson City and NDOT begin cooperative effort for Freeway and City Master Plan Drainage Design

Freeway Design Effort (cont.)

  • NDOT / City / WRC Studies

    • Hydrologic Analysis of Eagle Valley
    • Galena Creek Watershed Comparison Study
    • Hydraulic Alternative Development Report
      • Included Offsite Detention Alternatives (but only on Public Lands)
    • 404(b)(1) Alternatives Report (minimize environmental impacts)
    • Lompa Lane Groundwater Analysis

New Years Day Flood, 1997 a.k.a. “Then It Rained”

  • Significant event in Eagle Valley
