Brookhaven, GA, September 11, 2015 – by Renee Turner, Staff Writer – The City of Brookhaven has issued a Request for Proposals for the flood plain analysis of Tributary A North Fork Peachtree Creek Culvert. This culvert is located under Dresden Drive, west of South Bamby Lane.
The study is to analyze the impact of the culvert’s capacity for both upstream and downstream for the creek that affects surrounding properties, and to provide an “exploratory” first step to determine expected consequences of increasing the capacity so that an informed decision can be made regarding future efforts.
Several residential areas in the area have experienced long-term severe flooding. According to the City, FEMA has already acquired and demolished at least two residences adjacent to the culvert under Dresden Drive.
The City says the study should reflect and include Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) accepted methodologies.
