Project scope

This project will construct water quality and drainage capacity improvements on Fish Creek. The possible scope for Phase V improvements may include construction of detention and storage facilities in the upper watershed upstream of the New Seward Highway. Installing creek signage and other water quality and creek capacity improvements are also anticipated.

Project need

Development has affected the natural flow of the creek and creek capacity is inadequate for current flow. The goal of the improvements will be to maintain the municipal water quality BMP program.

Project status

Several phases have already been funded and constructed.

This project should include study for daylighting the Creek from Cuddy Park to Cook Inlet with a multi-use trail included in the creek corridor.

This is Turnagain Community Council's #9-ranked Roads & Drainage project. As we requested in 2015, please AMEND the Project Need language by ADDING the following: "Turnagain Community Council supports water quality and drainage capacity improvement projects for the entire stretch of Fish Creek, including day-lighting the creek wherever possible. Site-specific projects should be included in next year's CIP list.
