This drainage sub-watershed is along the Turkey Creek Tributary 'F' immediately East of Nieman Rd to East of Barton St and has a long history of flooding adjacent homes, apartments and streets in large storm events. The Northeast Johnson County Watershed Study completed by Johnson County in 2006 identified numerous homes and streets flooding in this area. The existing system is undersized and inadequate and is contributing to the flooding of four (4) homes, two (2) commercial buildings and Nieman Road. The proposed project will include removal of two (2) homes, two (2) commercial buildings, installation of approximately 190 LF of concrete lined channel, 5 reinforced concrete boxes (2750 LF) under Nieman Rd and channel improvements transitions.
