Strategic Measure_Number of buildings, roadways, and properties with reduced flood risk due to City efforts

Strategic Direction 2023 (SD23) Measure HE.E.5.a reports the number and percentage of buildings, roadways, and properties whose exposure to high flooding risk have decreased due to City efforts. Flood risk can occur during rain events when creeks overflow their banks (creek flooding) or when the capacity of older storm drains and small channels is overwhelmed (local flooding). The Watershed Protection Department helps reduce flood risk through the implementation of structural solutions (e.g., detention ponds, low water crossing upgrades, floodwalls, flow diversion, storm drain improvements) and non-structural solutions (e.g., property acquisition or "buyouts" of properties with severe flood risk, permanent road closures).
