Hickory, North Carolina: $3.54 Million

History

The Snow Creek Pump Station is currently located in the 100-year floodplain, with a finished floor elevation 1.5 feet below the base flood elevation.

Project Description

This project will include demolition and reconstruction of the pump station outside the 100-year floodplain at a higher elevation to mitigate flood damage, and the installation of a generator to mitigate loss of function during power failures. The project will also include bank stabilization of Snow Creek, excavating and re-grading the stream bank to provide additional capacity for flood water, and planting native plants to reduce erosion and restore the ecosystem.
