  • 4. cedar rapids, ia Bridgeport, CT chicago, Il cincinnati, oh During the June 2008 flood of record, the Cedar River crested 11.5 feet higher than any previously recorded flood, submerging 10 square miles of the City, forcing thousands of evacuations and causing billions of dollars in damage. Between 1964 and 2006, monthly tide gauges in Bridgeport show a mean sea level rise trend of 0.1 inch a year, according to the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. Before recent cleanup efforts, 1.2 billion gallons of combined sewer effluent was dumped into The Chicago River each day. Various City agencies and organizations like ‘Friends of the River’ have made significant strides to prioritize water quality and reclaim the River for the public benefit. The Ohio River experiences a dramatic yearly change in elevation - it fluctuates approximately 30’ annually, and can crest up to 50’ during a 100-year flood event. The Riverfront Master Plan for Cedar Rapids balances a diverse set of community needs, providing amenities to draw people downtown, continuous public access, increased water-side recreational opportunities, and acres of restored riparian zones to help absorb the Cedar River’s floodwaters. Sasaki’s Parks Master Plan reclaimed hundreds of acres of floodplain along Bridgeport’s three rivers as a connected open space system. The Chicago Riverwalk Concept Plan increases connectivity, recreational opportunities, and access to the River while also introducing strategies like floating wetlands to increase aquatic habitat potential, improve water quality, and provide educational opportunities. Sasaki’s design for the Phyllis W. Smale Riverfront Park converts 32 acres of parking lots within the 100-year flood plain into the largest of a series of public parks along the Ohio River, improving connectivity and recreational opportunities while reducing stormwater runoff and absorbing flood waters. wilkes-barre, pa columbus, oh council bluffs, ia indianapolis, in In September of 2011, the Susquehanna River reached a record elevation of 42.6 feet in Wilkes-Barre, topping the 40.9-foot record flood caused by Hurricane Agnes in 1972. The newly designed levee park system withstood the storm. At Ohio State University, an existing overflow dam proliferates the Olentangy River’s poor ecological health. Additionally, over 33 Acres of the university’s parking lots are located within the 100year floodplain, draining directly into the river. The Missouri River crested above the 100-year flood elevation and remained above flood stage for the entire summer of 2011, greatly exceeding previous flooding events in duration. In Indianapolis, less than a half-inch of precipitation can overwhelm the City’s Combined Sewer system, forcing untreated effluent into the White River. Initiatives to remedy the situation range from a multi-billion dollar, decades-long tunnel project to site-scaled stormwater management practices. Sasaki designed a new series of floodwalls and floodgates - to both protect the community but also welcome it to a new riverfront park - in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania just prior to this record storm. Restoring the river’s natural ecology and redesigning adjacent streets as flood protection reclaims 144 acres of core campus, supporting the plan’s ecological, academic, and social engagement goals. Council Bluffs Riverfront Park is a 90-acre public park situated within the broad floodplain of the great Missouri River. The design focuses intensity of public use and development at the core of the site, balancing Riverfront program with the preservation of key habitat and riparian floodplain. A twenty-five year effort, the White River State Park includes restoration of the White River and the Downtown Canal, reconnecting the City to its waterfronts and providing improved flood protection, stormwater retention and water quality benefit.
