The Town of Chapel Hill's Stormwater Management Program is continuing the development of subwatershed planning for the Lower Booker Creek Subwatershed Study. The Town's engineering consultants, W. K. Dickson will catalog and assess the drainage system, stream stability, and water quality.
As a strategic initiative of the Chapel Hill Stormwater Management Master Plan, this data will be used to identify and prioritize stormwater projects that will help lessen drainage and flooding impacts, stabilize streams, and improve water quality in the subwatershed.
The study is expected to take from 12 to 14 months. Public involvement opportunities will be extended to those who live, visit, or work in the Lower Booker Creek subwatershed during the process.
Most of Chapel Hill has been developed as residential area and varies widely in regard to stream buffers, street and stormwater conveyance design, and stormwater control facilities.
For these reasons, it is important to specifically assess the stormwater concerns in each area and develop appropriate subwatershed plans for infrastructure and water quality improvements.
Continued development of subwatershed plans is a strategic initiative identified in the MASTER PLAN under the Town Council’s Stormwater Program Goals 2, 3, and 4.
Stormwater Program Goals:
And developing integrated subwatershed plans for improvements will gradually add to the MASTER PLAN project lists for the infrastructure and water quality Capital Improvements Projects (CIP) and the Drainage Partnership Program.
