Developing Planning-Level Drainage Solutions in Large, Multi-Jurisdictional Watersheds
In October 2000, the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD or District) began the Regional Intercommunity Drainage Evaluation (RIDE) Study of 27 urban watersheds, representing a 414 square mile (1069 km2) area within the metropolitan Cleveland area. The study area encompasses all or part of 60 communities that are located either within the District’s service area or in an adjoining watershed. Some challenges common to large, multi-jurisdictional studies were encountered over the course of the RIDE Study. The purpose of this chapter is to highlight, using a case study in Ohio, how these challenges were addressed for the development of regional, planning-level drainage solutions in multi-jurisdictional watersheds.
