Selma Flood Mitigation Modeling

Town of Selma
Program Area:
Flood Mitigation and Recovery Program
County of Applicant:

The Town of Selma experiences flooding during heavy non-named rain events in the northeast quadrant of town. The town is separated in four quadrants that are separated by railroads crossing through the center of town. Each quadrant has its own individual internal drainage creating a bowl type system. Golden LEAF flood mitigation grant funds will be used to develop a stormwater master plan for the Town of Selma in the northeastern quadrant. Components of this project include field data collection, modeling of existing watersheds, development of concept plans and alternatives, and a summary report. Within this quadrant there are households, businesses, other public and private facilities, and healthcare facilities that will benefit from this project. Additionally, the Town Hall, the Selma Fire Department, and the historic Rudy Theater are located in this area. The roads around the fire and EMS stations become impassable. Access to US highway 301 also becomes restricted during flood events.
