The City of Irving has selected Pape-Dawson Engineers for the multi-phased North Delaware Creek Drainage Improvements project. As part of the City’s Municipal Drainage Utility (MDU) Program, the North Delaware Creek project will reduce flood risk hazards and improve drainage conditions by expanding existing drainage channels and upgrading wastewater mains.
Key staff from Pape-Dawson’s water resources, transportation, environmental, and GIS departments are joining forces, with multiple sub-consultant firms. Pape-Dawson’s project deploys an innovative, holistic approach to capture flood risk with a high degree of accuracy to prepare regulatory FEMA and environmental permitting documents and produce construction drawings for a larger channel with structural walls and new roadway crossings. Completion of this project is expected to protect public and private properties, including an estimated 200 residences from the 100-year floodplain.
“Pape-Dawson was selected for the North Delaware Creek project as our solution-based approaches and services were focused on the City’s immediate project and long-term program needs,” explained Cara Tackett, P.E. LEED AP Senior Vice President. “As we kick off this project, we will demonstrate our commitment to the City through our high-quality deliverables.”
Pape-Dawson brings comprehensive ingenuity to the City by capitalizing on our established expertise and experiences gained from San Antonio and Houston flood mitigation projects.
