Plaster Creek Flood Mitigation Project in Grand Rapids, Michigan (April 2006)

Main Content
Following severe storms and flooding in September 2000, the City of Grand Rapids in Kent County, Michigan, applied to FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program for funds to implement measures designed to protect residential structures from floodwaters. The measures include the heightening of an existing earthen levee, construction of a steel sheet pile floodwall, construction of a series of low earthen levees and modular block floodwalls, and the clearing of an existing diversion canal to improve its conveyance capacity. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act and its implementing regulations, FEMA prepared an Environmental Assessment to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the proposed actions.
