Valley Creek Project Delivery Team
The Kansas City District supported the Mobile District with personnel and organization. The montage represents many of the team members for the Valley Creek Flood Risk Reduction Project Delivery Team. Local leaders in Bessemer, Birmingham and other communities supported the feasibility study which led to the Chief of Engineers, Lt. Gen. Scott Spellmon, to sign the Chief's Report to Congress, Friday, Oct. 28, 2021. That refers the action for Congressional consideration and it may be included for authorization in the next Water Resources Development Act and then separately funded in follow-on legislation. The study recommends two retention basins be constructed along Valley Creek to mitigate the height of the water during seasonal and intermittent flooding.
