Bull Junior Creek Floodplain

Public Open House

One of the top goals identified by the Village of Kronenwetter has been to conduct a floodplain study to investigate the floodplain issues associated with Bull Junior Creek. This floodplain affects a large number of homes, businesses and vacant properties in the area. In the summer of 2018, the Village contracted with AECOM to begin their work in remodeling and remapping this floodplain. The top goal of this project is to more accurately assess the risks of flooding from Bull Junior Creek within the area.

The current floodplain study of Bull Junior Creek utilized by the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) for floodplain determinations was completed in April of 1979. Since that time, technology has come a long way. The Village acquired 1-foot LiDAR data in 2013, which along with modern modeling techniques will allow AECOM to provide the Village and our regulatory partners a much more accurate picture of where the floodplain boundary is actually located.  We are not proposing to alter waterways, simply trying to determine the actual extent of the floodplain.

The Village of Kronenwetter held a Public Open House on September 26th at 6pm in the Community Room at the Municipal Center to present the preliminary findings from AECOM’s study and answer questions. A copy of the presentation from the Open House can be found HERE.
