MINDEN, Nev. – Johnson Lane residents are invited to learn about the Johnson Lane Area Drainage Master Plan (ADMP) on Wednesday, Aug. 9 at the CVIC Hall in downtown Minden. Past flood experiences, comments, and concerns from residents are welcome and needed in order to create a comprehensive drainage master plan for Johnson Lane. The ADMP is being completed with funding provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency with matching funds provided by Douglas County.
Open House and Information Meeting
Wednesday, August 9
5 – 7 p.m. (Short presentation at 5:30 p.m.)
1602 Esmeralda Avenue
The Open House and Informational meeting will include a short presentation from drainage experts at 5:30 p.m., followed by time for residents to share their past flood experiences.
The ADMP will examine historic flow patterns and analyze how development and road networks have altered these patterns and will provide a list of improvements necessary to allow the roadway network to accommodate a 25-year 24-hour storm, the standard for all County roadways. The ADMP will also examine what projects would be necessary to provide protection above the adopted County standards up to the 100-year peak runoff event. At its completion, the ADMP will become a planning document for the County to prioritize projects and plan for future construction costs to reduce flood risk in the area.
