Stormwater System Master Plan

The Bryan Storm Water Masterplan was prepared to assist the City in evaluating the existing conditions of selected storm water infrastructure and to develop a storm water capital improvement plan to address existing problems.

The project consists of three components documented in this report:

  • Data Collection and Assessment
  • Ranked city-wide storm water Capital Improvement Plan
  • Access Database and Geographical Information System (GIS) color-coded map

These components led to the following deliverables:

  • A sustainable city-wide ranked storm water Capital Improvement Plan using a Microsoft Access database that identifies existing problems, solutions and recommended budgetary needs;
  • An interactive GIS color-coded map that is linked to the Access database and shows the locations of projects; and
  • A summary report documenting the process and ranking methodology

The city-wide storm water Capital Improvement Plan includes identifying and ranking the drainage capital improvement projects (CIPs) within eight of the City’s different watersheds: Burton Creek, Briar Creek, Carters Creek, Cottonwood Branch, Hudson Creek, Still Creek, Thompson Branch, and Turkey Creek.

A total of 122 capital improvement projects were identified through data collection and assessment of existing studies, GIS data and City information. The identified projects are categorized into four different project types: flooding, erosion, maintenance, and water quality, as shown in Figure 1. The projects were organized and ranked within a Microsoft Access database that is linked to a GIS location map. This database is intended as a “living” document with which future projects can be added and prioritized.

The projects are prioritized according to a ranking system developed through coordination with City staff. The ranking system is based on nine weighted criteria that are described in this report.

The ranking criteria include life safety, street flooding, infrastructure damage, structure flooding, frequency of flooding, project cost, maintenance, funding source, and right-of-way availability. The city-wide ranking of the drainage projects is shown in Table 5 of the report. The projects identified and ranking of projects are a planning tool to aid City staff in annual budgeting and project implementation for their storm water infrastructure. A project cost was developed for each project based on 2010 dollars, and the 122 identified capital improvement projects sum as shown in Tables 1 and 2 below.

Water System Master Plan

The Water System Master Plan created by Camp, Dresser & McKee of Austin, Texas in June, 2002 functions as a roadmap for City staff to implement existing system improvements and accommodate future growth and development. The Executive Summary gives a brief outline on the condition of the City of Bryan’s existing system while the Master Plan goes into greater detail on both the existing system and the needs for the future.
