City Introduces Stormwater Master Plan
St. Petersburg, FL. (Feb. 2020) - The City of St. Petersburg is working to improve stormwater, flooding and sea level rise with the development of the Stormwater Master Plan.
The three-year plan is dividing into two phases:
- Phase 1: Identify areas of concern by collecting data from multiple sources including existing databases, computer models, field surveys and public input
- Phase 2: Design drainage system improvements to enable effective long-term stormwater management and sea level rise resiliency
St. Pete residents can help inform the plan by identifying regions that are impacted by flooding the most. Input can be submitted at seeclickfix.com/st-petersburg under the Flooding category through May 2020.
