Public Open House on Dry Creek Master Drainage Plan

The City of Cheyenne will host a public open house to receive community input and update the Dry Creek Master Drainage Plan for the Dry Creek drainage basin.

With continuing development north of Dell Range Boulevard and along the eastern side of the city’s corporate limits, stormwater runoff is projected to increase within the basin. This study will look at current drainage issues and update the drainage plan to address future flood control and ongoing maintenance within the basin.

The primary goal of the updated study is to provide a plan of conceptual designs for addressing future flood control for specific reaches and crossings of Dry Creek, along with preliminary cost estimates and a priority-driven implementation schedule.

The open house is set for 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 11, in the Cottonwood Room of the Laramie County Library. The city, design team, and community members will explore and discuss improvement strategies that will guide the updated plan.
