City of Lincoln Stormwater Drainage & Flooding Survey
Have you observed flooding on your property or elsewhere in the City of Lincoln? Has flooding caused damage to your home or other property? If so, here is an opportunity to let the City know about your drainage issues.
Historically, the City has pursued bond issues from taxpayers to fund public stormwater projects. As recently as 2012, taxpayers in Lincoln approved such a stormwater bond. The City uses these funds to complete numerous public projects related to flood control, storm drain system upgrades, water quality and stream rehabilitation. As a resident, you may be aware of drainage problems in your area or other areas of the City. Your assistance to identify drainage problems will aid the City in prioritizing future drainage projects.
The 2013-2014 Urban Drainage Preliminary Engineering Study is currently being completed. This project involves the analysis of various storm drainage networks across the City to identify deficiencies, drainage and flooding problems. Information collected from this survey will help the City identify and prioritize future stormwater drainage improvements.
Please take time to complete this brief survey. Any information you are able to provide will be useful.
