Oxford Stormwater Master Plan

City of Oxford
Program Area:
Flood Mitigation and Recovery Program
County of Applicant:

The City of Oxford experiences flooding throughout the city during heavy, unnamed, non-tropical rain events. During these flooding events, public works staff cannot access critical infrastructure at the wastewater treatment plant. The city has begun to prioritize stormwater management over the past few years including stormwater mitigation efforts along Goshen Street. To create a master plan, the applicant is requesting Golden LEAF flood mitigation grant funds to map stormwater infrastructure within the entire jurisdiction and perform modeling along sub-basins west and parallel to College Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue. Additional data collection, modeling of existing watersheds, and the development of concept plans and alternatives will also be completed. The city plans to use the data acquired from this project for future stormwater improvement grant opportunities and to prioritize projects funded by their stormwater utility fund. The entire city will benefit from this project.
