Papillion Creek Watershed Supplemental Plan – Environmental Assessment
Due to the uncertainty involved with the COVID-19 virus and public health developments, the Papio NRD and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) are going to cancel the scheduled open house. However, your feedback is important to us.
Beginning on March 23, the planned presentation will be available on our project website: https://trello.com/b/I2bEEIiB/papillion-creek-watershed-supplemental-plan-ea
Site locations and preliminary designs have been developed for the seven sites proposed in Douglas, Sarpy and Washington Counties and information on each site will be detailed in the presentation. The projects are intended to develop solutions for watershed issues such as erosion, floodwater and sediment damage, water quality and habitat improvements, and others.
The project team including the P-MRNRD, NRCS, FYRA Engineering, and Olsson Associates will do our best to accommodate requests for information and are willing to send information by mail, email, etc. Please reach out with any comments or questions to Amanda Grint, Project Manager. You may reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 402-315-1722. You may also send comments to my attention at Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District, 8901 South 154th Street, Omaha, NE 68138. Please provide comments by April 6th.
A year has passed since the historic flood of March 2019. The Papio NRD along with the Lower Platte North, Lower Elkhorn, and Central Platte NRDs are in an agreement to monitor river conditions along the Lower Platte River. We are boots on the ground. Today we share with you a podcast that tells how events unfolded here in our District and partner Districts.
To help keep residents who live near Union Dike informed of the status of the levee’s rehabilitation, the Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District is providing a project timeline.
Union Dike is located on the east bank of the Platte River between Valley and Fremont, Nebraska. The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the Papio NRD are working together to repair 2019 flood-damaged areas caused by overtopping of the dike and high water along both sides of the dike.
The USACE is handling the following tasks:
Prepare project repair plans
Hire a contractor to complete the dike repairs
Administer/inspect the repair work
The Papio NRD will provide soil for the repairs and reimburse the USACE 20% of the construction costs.
The tentative Union Dike project timeline is as follows:
USACE advertise project for bids – March 12, 2020
USACE open bids – March 26, 2020
USACE give contractor Notice to Proceed – April 30, 2020
Completion Date (120 days from Notice to Proceed) – August 28, 2020
It should be noted, the project schedule is contingent on receiving acceptable bids and suitable construction weather.
