The City committed to a vision for its stormwater program through the development of a holistic Stormwater Master Plan (SWMP). The SWMP is the first holistic stormwater plan in South Florida that will not only include traditional development of capital improvement projects but will also be driven by the City’s vision to proactively modernize and adjust to the new realities of stormwater management in our integrated and complex watersheds. The SWMP leverages the best of traditional technologies but also integrates the use of resiliency planning and catered technologies to better prepare the City for future conditions. Some of these technologies include green infrastructure and low impact development, as well as modernized methods to better manage hydrology, hydraulics, and water quality throughout the City. The project also directly benefits residents and business owners through an active program to better manage ever-growing flood insurance premiums. It is expected that the City’s residents will save approximately $6 million in flood insurance premiums (annually) from the work completed under the project.
