    1. Paul M. Frost, P.E. Principal Hydraulic Engineer Nevada Department of Transportation Mark E. Forest, P.E. Executive Vice-President WRC Nevada, Inc. Mahmood Azad, P.E. Development Services Manager Carson City Carson City Freeway

    2. Carson Freeway Phase I - Red Phase II - Blue Hwy 50 Hwy 50

    3. Phase I - Carson Freeway

    4. Project History • Corridor Selection Study (1970’s) • Carson City Endorses alignment in 1984 (“Edmonds” alignment, though center of valley) • Right-of-Way acquisition begins in 1986

    5. Alignment Challenges • Clean Water Act of 1980 (Section 404 - Wetland Issues) • “Species of Concern” - The Carson Wandering Skipper Butterfly • Water Quality Issues (NDEP)

    6. “Thank you for visiting Carson City” Nevada Appeal, 1999

    7. Alignment Challenges (cont.) Floodplain Impacts Alignment is at low point in Eagle Valley (45 sq. mi. watershed, 100-Year = 10,000 cfs FEMA Floodplains / Floodways Published in 1986 18,000 feet of alignment is in within regulatory floodplain 8,000 feet of alignment is in floodway

    8. Floodway 100-Year Floodplain Zone B (Shallow) Carson Freeway

    9. Floodway Zone B (Shallow) Carson Freeway 100-Year Floodplain

    10. Freeway Design Effort • NDOT Begins Design in 1994 • Recognized the necessity for complimentary City and State designs • Carson City and NDOT begin cooperative effort for Freeway and City Master Plan Drainage Design

    11. Freeway Design Effort (cont.) • NDOT / City / WRC Studies • Hydrologic Analysis of Eagle Valley • Galena Creek Watershed Comparison Study • Hydraulic Alternative Development Report • Included Offsite Detention Alternatives (but only on Public Lands) • 404(b)(1) Alternatives Report (minimize environmental impacts) • Lompa Lane Groundwater Analysis

    12. Detention Basin at Gravel Pit Single-Cell RCB Multi-Cell RCB Collector Channel Multi-Cell RCB Water Quality Basin Collector Channel Open Channel

    13. New Years Day Flood, 1997a.k.a. “Then It Rained” • Significant event in Eagle Valley • Over a 100-Year event on Vicee Canyon • Major sediment loads

    14. 1997 Flood, continued • Could have been worse • Existing gravel pit on Vicee acted as retention basin • Roughly __ feet of sediment deposition

    15. Inter-Local Agreement • 1997 event stressed the need for major, comprehensive flood control infrastructure • Through a Partnering Process, Carson City and NDOT cooperate to develop a regional flood control solution

    16. Carson City Stormwater Master Plan • 1994 Master Plan • 401b Alternatives Analysis • Northwest Alternatives Analysis

    17. Northwest Alternatives Study • Watershed Area for Phase 1B • Existing Detention • Within Silver Oaks Development (Evaluation) • Detention and Conveyance Alternatives

    18. Watershed Map

    19. Contributing Drainage Area

    20. Northwest Alternatives Study • Goals and Purpose: • Regional Flood Control Planning • Integration of Regional Flood Control with Freeway Project • Reduction in Costs for Freeway • Reduction In Costs for Carson City • Reduction in Environmental Impacts • Significant Reduction in Floodplain Area

    21. Northwest Alternatives Study • State/Local/Private Partnership • Nevada Department of Transportation • Carson City • Developers • Advantages • Land Acquisition • Shared Costs • Regional Flood Control Measures Expedited

    22. Project Features • Detention Basins • Shenandoah Heights (Carson City) • Eagle Canyon • Silver Oaks (3 Basins with Golf Course) • Conveyance Facilities • Channels • Culverts • Storm Drains

    23. Project Features

    24. Pre-Project Flood Limits

    25. Post-Project Flood Limits

    26. Project Benefits • Reduction in Floodplain/Floodways • Reduction in Facilities Costs • Reduction in Utility Relocation Cost • Reduced Flood Risk to Public Facilities • Reduced Maintenance Costs

    27. Erosion and Sediment Damages

    28. Erosion and Sediment Damages

    29. Conclusions • State/Local Partnerships Have Benefits • WIN - WIN For Everyone • Advanced Planning Is Valuable • Everyone Saves $$$ • Maintenance is Reduced • Results in Significant Public Benefits
