Blanchard Study Information


The Feasibility Study will identify and analyze combinations of flood risk management and ecosystem restoration measures in order to develop the best flood risk management plan for each community. A total of 10 measures were identified in the initial screening: 

1. Detention storage areas 

2. Diversion structures 

3. Floodwalls 

4. Control structures to prevent overflow

5. Levees 

6. Channel Realignment 

7. Removal or modification of structural impediments in the floodplain

8. Channel Deepening 

9. Continued clearing and snagging of Blanchard River

10.  Non-structural measures: retrofitting of residential and commercial buildings to reduce flood damages
