Will the project cause additional flooding?

No, the project will not add additional fill to the floodplain or raise flood elevations.  

According to the Georgia Environmental Protection Division, “Trails are one of the most common recreational uses within floodplains and are used for a variety of activities including walking, jogging and biking. Generally, multi-use trails are paved to improve accessibility, prevent erosion, increase longevity, and minimize maintenance needs.”  When designing the sidewalk, the slope, width, paving material, and subsurface conditions were all taken into consideration (Source:  Georgia Environmental Protection Division, Best Practices:  Greenspace and Flood Protection Guidebook).
