Crescent Meadows Storm Drainage Improvements

Independence, MO

RIC worked with the City of Independence, MO to alleviate home flooding in the Crescent Meadows neighborhood. The project focused on the rear property line of several homes in the neighborhood, properties to the east are significantly higher in elevation than those to the west. As water flows down the hill towards the western properties, it runs directly toward the properties and into the low openings around the homes.

RIC designed a drainage channel and berm running parallel to the rear property line to intercept stormwater heading toward the homes experiencing flooding. The overall project includes the design of the channel and berm, drop structures along the channel, one culvert pipe, and a small enclosed system.
