4 Review New Drainage Concepts Recharge features Rooftop harvesting/other Detention pond footprint Upstream detention

5 Drainage Mitigation Alternatives AlternativeLevel of Service Provided Regional Drainage Plan100 year ultimate development Emergency Access Route100 year ingress/egress Peak Flow Diversion5 year ingress/egress & structure Detention5 year Culvert Improvements5 year ingress/egress Buyout Option 5 Year5 year structure Buyout Option 100 Year100 year structure

6 Regional Drainage Plan Partnering with City of Austin and Travis County Possible Improvements Include  Modifying West Gate Blvd  Regional Channelization  Regional detention  Regional natural waterway maintenance program

7 Regional Drainage Plan Advantages  Regional approach will achieve higher level of service  Regional solutions typically generate higher benefit cost ratio Disadvantages  City/County participation unknown Cost (unknown)

8 Emergency Access Route

9 Advantages  Provides 100 year ingress/egress  Improves public health and safety  Multi use Disadvantages  Will need to be maintained  Requires 11 easements Cost $ 720,000

10 Peak Flow Diversion

11 Advantages  Multi-use improvement  Provides 5 year ingress/egress  Removes 4 homes & 5 structures form 5 year floodplain  Reduces peak flow rates on other storm events Disadvantages  Requires clearing of existing natural area  Not accepted by the public  Easement required (1) Cost $1,600,000
