Current Activity

Updated Friday, Oct. 25

We are in the early stages of identifying stormwater issues in the following areas:

  • Glenbrook Drive
  • Dacian Road
  • Rose Lane
  • Dana Drive

During this phase, we will get feedback from you on the drainage conditions in south Raleigh. More details on a public meeting to come.


The purpose of this project is to perform a hydraulic analysis to understand flooding from Walnut Creek. We will look at how often and how long it floods in each area. Then, we'll make improvements to the stormwater system based on those results.
