Published Jan. 8, 2021

ST. LOUIS – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District, in coordination with the non-Federal sponsor, the City of Eureka is hosting a virtual public scoping meeting on January 20, 2021 to present information and gather feedback from the public on the scope of the CAP Section 205, City of Eureka, Missouri Feasibility Report with Integrated Environmental Assessment, a Flood Risk Management study. 

The meeting will be hosted online and will include an overview of the study process including preliminary findings and potential solutions.

The FRM study will consider strategies and tools to modify human susceptibility to flood damage and disruption through floodplain and floodwater management recommendations such as flood risk awareness and communication, and flood damage reduction measures.

“Homes, businesses, and infrastructure around the Meramec River in Eureka, Missouri have been significantly impacted by flooding,” said Shawn Sullivan, Strategic Planning Coordinator for the Corps of Engineers. “This meeting will enable residents, business owners, and the public to inform the Corps about flooding in the community and provide input on the direction of the study.”

This meeting is an opportunity for the public to bring the planning team’s attention to local considerations and conditions and to make suggestions. The public may also provide comments after the meeting for 30 days via the email address below. Presentations on existing conditions and recent flooding will be given by subject-matter experts from the Corps of Engineers. The City of Eureka will be available to answer questions and provide additional information to attendees.
