Drainage Study - Rogers, AR

In 1989, the City of Rogers determined the need to establish standard criteria for developers and engineers to follow for drainage designs associated with development projects. The City selected Crafton Tull to aid in their endeavor by preparing the drainage manual that remains in use today. Crafton Tull conducted a drainage study that divided the entire City into a network of drainage basins. The study determined the flow rate of these basins as well as key roadway crossings throughout the City. Along with the flow information, Crafton Tull provided recommendations and cost estimates for locations that required upgrades. These recommendations led to the City hiring Crafton Tull to design the Turtle Creek Improvements, one of the creeks in the City with significant flooding problems. In 2008, the City chose Crafton Tull to rewrite the drainage manual to reflect the industry's latest hydraulic engineering techniques. Our team mapped the City's entire storm drainage system as part of the study.
