Study for Flood Management and Water Quality Funding


Purpose of the Study

The purpose of the study effort is to present options for sustainable funding for stormwater management, to reduce flooding, and protect water quality. As part of the study the consultant will:

  • Review the City’s existing stormwater system and program
  • Collect input from the City Council, staff, and citizen stakeholders regarding the current state, and the necessary/desired future state of stormwater programs in the City
  • Develop options for funding, based on the current and desired future states of the program, and present those options to the City Council for consideration

The funding needed for stormwater management will be based on the desired level of service; therefore, citizen feedback is an important part of the study process, and your participation is encouraged. 

A survey and other public engagement opportunities will be launched soon on Speak Up Fayetteville, the City's public engagement portal.
