Dear friends and neighbors,
I know it is short notice with comments due on Friday but many people who live near or commute through the Chester Creek flood plain have interest in this issue.
AWR Engineering, LLC (AWR) is assisting the Municipality of Anchorage (MOA) Project Management and Engineering (PM&E) department with evaluation of flood relief alternatives for the Chester Creek corridor from A Street to the Westchester Lagoon outlet into Cook Inlet. This area has experienced repeated flooding over the past several decades, particularly through the Valley of the Moon Park area. The purpose of this report is to discuss the causes of flooding and present alternatives identified to reduce impacts of flooding along this corridor.
PM&E is distributing the executive summary from the Pre-Final Design Study Report for the Chester Creek flooding project for your review and comment.
The primary change from the draft DSR is the added Alternative 4, which is a scaled-down version of the full creek realignment alternative.
