Abstract:

Garfield Heights encompasses an area approximately four square miles and has a population of about 41,500 people. Mill Creek, Wolf Creek, Andover Creek and their tributaries provide drainage for most of the city. The city has a history of periodic flooding from these streams and also significant flooding from local runoff accumulation and ponding which enters have been taken by the city government to alleviate the various flood problems by providing a syste of open and subsurface drains. However, these measures have only a partial effect on the local runoff that would be produced during the 100 and 500 year floods. Hilly terrain, lack of complete drainage system, a combined storm and sanitary sewer system in some locations, lengthy culverts, are the main reasons for the flooding problems. Author
