City of Abilene to Develop "Master Drainage Plan"

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - The City of Abilene is developing a plan to address the issue of flooding throughout town. 

During their bi-weekly meeting Thursday morning, city council members are scheduled to discuss hiring a company to develop an 'Abilene Master Drainage Plan'.

The City received several proposals for the project in December of 2016 before city leaders decided to extend a $200,000 offer to HDR Engineering Inc. to develop the drainage plan.

The contract between the City of Abilene and HDR Engineering Inc. will be considered for approval or dismissal during Thursday's meeting.

"This contract will include several facets of work including data collection and review, site reconnaissance surveys, flooding problem identification, CIP project development, water quality enhancements, CIP prioritization, financial plan, council presentation, as well as other operations not listed," according to documents provided on the City of Abilene's website. 

Funding for the development of the 'Abilene Master Drainage Plan' will come from the City's Stormwater Services fund.
