The City of Moscow (City) was recently awarded a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to conduct a study to assess potential flood hazard mitigation actions on Paradise Creek (Project). The Project focuses on Paradise Creek flooding problems between Mountain View Park and Troy Road / State Highway 8 near the intersection with Styner and White Avenue. The planning process will involve the following main activities: (a) preparing a high-resolution flood model for the Paradise Creek study area; (b) examining flooding problems and causes; (c) identifying ways to reduce flooding problems while also enhancing recreation and environmental resources; and (d) selecting a preferred overall flood hazard mitigation alternative for the study area.
The Project will also involve preparing a preliminary design for the preferred flood hazard mitigation alternative and coordinating with FEMA about potential changes to the City’s official flood maps.
