Managing Water Flow

A dry creek can turn drainage problems and flooding into a clean and attractive channel for excess water. This homeowner had a drainage easement running through their back yard. Excess water from road runoff and the nearby subdivision eroded banks, depositied sediment and flooded the property. Our goals were to improve water flow and increase the volume of water that the dry creek bed could channel away, and also improve the appearance of the dry creek. We excavated and widened bed to allow for greater volume of water and prevent flooding. Landscape fabric and riprap stones look nice and keep soil from eroding the banks and decrease sediment buildup downstream.
