Homes' flood risk reduced
Lynchburg Creek runs through the central and eastern portions of the City of Corinth. The creek is the source of most of the city’s flood risks in areas such as Amity Village and Corinth Farms. In addition to a history of drainage and flooding issues in these areas, updated FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps placed an additional burden on the residents of approximately 70-homes that were added to the 100-year floodplain by the updated maps.
Our team used hydrology and hydraulic modeling to evaluate flood risk reduction alternatives for the watershed. Ditches, culverts, inlets and other drainage infrastructure within the creek were observed to note apparent capacity and maintenance issues.
To reduce the risk of flooding to approximately 100 homes, our team prepared an application for grant funding through the Flood Mitigation Assistance program requesting $2.9 million for the full design and construction of channel improvements, stormwater detention, and drainage structures.
