Blackwater River Local Flood Protection

The District conducted studies concerning the feasibility of providing local flood protection along the Blackwater River in Salisbury. Preliminary studies indicated that flood control measures would be economically justified, and further detailed studies were conducted to fully evaluate flood control alternatives and impacts. A draft Detailed Project Report/Environmental Assessment (DPR/EA) that evaluates potential improvements and recommends a plan to reduce flood damages in the low lying area between Ninth Street and Florence Avenue was completed in May 2006.The Project Partnership Agreement (PPA) for the project was signed by the Commonwealth and the District in May 2009 and final design efforts are currently underway.
