This GI study is in response to the frequent flooding in Garden City resulting in risk to property, critical infrastructure, and threat to life-safety. In addition, population growth and development in the floodplain in Garden City has increased risk of potential damages from flooding. The intent of the Garden City GI Study is to analyze potential solutions to reduce risk to human safety, critical infrastructure, and economic damages from flooding events.
