Randolph Public Meeting Next Week

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in cooperation with the City of Randolph, will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at the City Auditorium.

The purpose of the meeting is to provide an update on a flood risk management study and gather input on the draft feasibility report and integrated environmental assessment.

The public meeting will run from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. with a brief presentation at 6:30 p.m. “During the open house portion of the meeting, the Corps will answer questions the public may have about the study,” said Gwyn Jarrett, project manager.

We are interested in speaking with local residents and listening to their thoughts on the Corps’ preferred alternative of widening approximately 1.4 miles of the Middle Logan Creek channel and modifying six bridges to reduce flood threats to lives and property in the city of Randolph,” added Jarrett.

The city of Randolph has experienced frequent flooding from Middle Logan Creek since the early 1900s as a result of intense rain during spring and summer months. There are currently no reliable flood risk reduction projects along the Middle Logan Creek or its tributaries in the Randolph area. Excavated material from a channel clean-out performed by the city in the late 1980s was placed along the banks of the channel to form spoil bank levees that parallel the channel. The spoil bank levees were not designed to any engineering specifications and cannot be relied upon to provide flood risk reduction.
