Examining Local Infrastructure Issues along Waterways
in a Watershed Context

December 12, 2018
Indianapolis, IN
Typical Local Water Infrastructure Issues Along Waterways
• Flooding of water/wastewater facilities built in floodplain
• Stormwater/CSO backup due to high tailwater
• Sediment build up in water supply reservoirs
• Exposed pipes due to eroded channel banks or bed incision
 In many cases, these issues are caused or exacerbated by
watershed-driven stressors
City of Kokomo 2013 Flooding Case Example

Flood Resilience Strategies along Wildcat Creek in Kokomo
Watershed

Gage
Kokomo
Gage
 80% to 90% of Peak Discharge at Kokomo is already present in Jerome!
 Trendline indicates an alarming increase in Peak Discharges over the years!
Implications on Local Infrastructure Issues
• Higher, more frequent high flows mean:
 More streambank erosion and channel bank incision
 Increase in exposed/undermined water and sewer pipes
 Increase in outfall structure failures
 Increase in sedimentation behind dams in water supply reservoirs
 More frequent and higher water levels in the stream
 More CSO back ups
 More chances of flooding of infrastructure placed in floodplains
Summary
• Addressing local water/wastewater infrastructure issues along waterways would
require implementing resilience measures in the community as well as
undertaking projects outside of community in the watershed
 At the local level:
 Implementing resilience strategies appropriate for each flood resilience planning zone
 At the watershed level
 Promoting soil health practices (such as cover crops) in the upstream watershed agricultural
areas
 Preserving remaining floodplain storage in the watershed
 Creating additional flood storage within the watershed
 Creating and enforcing No-Adverse-Impact ordinance and standards to control runoff and to
limit disturbance within floodways and fluvial erosional corridors

Editor's Notes

  1. Adopt Specific Land Use Strategies for Distinct Geographical Areas Prohibit disturbance within River Corridor Impact Areas Preserve flood storage and minimize impacts within Undeveloped High Hazard Flood/Storage Areas Relocate or protect assets in already Developed Vulnerable Areas Incentivize development in placement of critical facilities in Safer Areas Adopt No-Adverse-Impact drainage standards within the entire Watershed
