In 2012, the City of Lake Forest presented FEMA with the Lyon Creek Mitigation Project to restore the creek and increase the natural flood storage capacity. Beyond reducing flooding in this area, the city improved the environment along Lyon Creek in this urban setting. The project benefited the community and environment in numerous ways by:
• Protecting 20+ homes, a fire station, SR 522 and the Town Center from the one percent-annual-chance flood
• Reducing flood insurance premiums for affected homes
• Improving fish habitat by removing barriers to fish passage and installing woody debris in the stream channel
• Re-establishing the floodplain and enhancing wetlands in two public parks.
This project is a successful example of mitigating flood risk through a flood reduction and floodplain restoration project. Throughout the region, communities are also managing their flood risk through managing floodplain development and providing access to flood insurance coverage by participating in the National Flood Insurance Program.
