The specific location of your parcel is critical to solving the flooding issue that has been problematic for the City for decades. Stormwater flooding has inundated the Manchester and Hanley intersection and properties in the area 26 times since 1957, creating significant public safety issues and property damage.
The City has been working with its engineering firm, Jacobs (formerly CH2M), to implement the designs to solve the flooding problems along Deer Creek affecting Manchester Road between Hanley Road and South Brentwood Boulevard. The plan is a combination of improvements to the channel and overflow areas to hold excess water in periods of flooding. All or part of 22 municipalities contribute nearly 37 square miles of watershed into the segment of Deer Creek that flows through Brentwood, which is also a fairly flat section of the creek.
