Department of Public Works Drainage Improvements
DeKalb County, GA
CERM teamed with DeKalb County Government to secure funding to complete engineering design and subsequent flood mitigation projects in six roadway and creek cross sections within DeKalb County. The basis of the joint funding initiatives was an intergovernmental agreement between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and DeKalb County Government and other metropolitan areas municipal governments to procure federal funding through USACE’s Civil Works Programming.
CERM subsequently teamed with a regional engineering firm and contractor to complete these projects, thus providing improved drainage in the impacted communities, and broadening stakeholder relationships with the impacted communities.
