All of the Phase 1 facilities will be located outside the 100-year flood zones, or above the 100-year flood elevations, as shown on FEMA’s Flood Insurance Rate Maps. This includes the groundwater injection facilities, the treatment plant, the Bluffs Park Pump Station, and the Legacy Park Pump Station. Nevertheless, all well heads will be sealed as an extra margin of safety.
It should be noted that FEMA’s maps do not show the re-contouring of elevations at Legacy Park, and, therefore, show much of the park within the 100-year flood zone. However, many areas of the park are currently above the 100-year flood elevations, and the pump station facilities are located in these areas.
