Public Notice          Project Plans          Alternatives Analysis

The applicant proposes to discharge dredged or fill material into a total of 7,361 linear feet of streams (1.72 acres), 4.22 acres of emergent wetlands and 0.1 acre of open water.  This project proposes modifications to Magnolia Creek, Cedar Gully, and three existing detention basins.  The tributaries will be regraded and resized to accommodate for NOAA Atlas 14 rainfall data.  The resizing will help ensure that drainage into the system from residential subdivisions (Westover Park, Countryside, Magnolia Creek, Rustic Oaks, and Jensen Colony) is meeting design standards and does not result in structural flooding within the neighborhoods.  De-snagging of the waterways will also occur with this work.  Another aspect of the project is correcting failed erosion control structures and stabilizing side-slopes.  These corrections will increase long-term channel stability, reduce long-term maintenance costs, and maintain flood control function of the channels.  The project will modify storm water outlets in the Magnolia Creek Subdivision to improve conveyance to the channel.  The existing culvert at the Summer Place crossing of Magnolia Creek will also be modified into a staged culvert opening by placing multiple barrels at different elevations.  The project proposes impacts to a detention basin.
