Reduce the severity and frequency of flooding and high water by preserving and increasing the existing water storage capacity below 100-year flood elevations on all waterbodies within MCWD.
The primary strategy in the management of stormwater and prevention of flooding in the Gleason Lake subwatershed is the preservation of the stormwater storage. Key areas identified in this plan for conservation include wetlands that provide floodplain storage and areas that provide channel and stream floodplain and riparian zones.
Desired Outcomes: No net loss of floodplain storage.
Metrics: Acres net floodplain fill.
Preserve the existing water storage capacity below the 100-year event elevation.
Utilize District hydrologic and hydraulic data to identify potential public infrastructure high water impacts
