Restoring the stream will not prevent it from flooding. Storm Water Services repairs erosion damage to stream banks, protects against future erosion and improves the health and flow of the creek.
Earlier, Storm Water Services bought and demolished four homes on Placid Place next to this segment of Briar Creek as part of the Floodplain Buyout Program.
Stream restoration cost:
$1.5 million (approximate)
Source of funding:
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water fees
Project Schedule (estimated):
Design: Summer 2013 to Summer 2014
Construction: Summer 2014 to Summer 2015
Efforts are taken to minimize disruption to property owners.
