City of Fayetteville’s Watershed Master Plan
In 2019, city leaders in Fayetteville, NC, set out on an ambitious $13M Watershed Master Plan program to better understand the severity of city-wide flooding and proactively develop flood mitigation projects. Leaders understood that a comprehensive evaluation would support resiliency by providing a pool of prioritized projects for both short- and long-term implementation. This evaluation would stretch resources equitably across the city, provide opportunities to identify creative regional-scale projects, and ensure inter-governmental and cross-departmental collaborations.
