Report: Foxconn Area Stormwater Controls Effective at Protecting From Flooding Risk
June 15, 2018
This week, the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (SEWRPC) released its floodplain evaluation of the Des Plains River Watershed portion of the Foxconn development in the Village of Mount Pleasant.
The report found that the proposed stormwater controls for the area will effectively protect downstream rivers and land from increased flooding.
"I want to thank SEWRPC for its diligence in this analysis, and Foxconn for the planning that resulted in these positive findings," said Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave. "We will continue to work cooperatively with SEWRPC, the Village of Mount Pleasant, and Kenosha County to address stormwater concerns and protect downstream land."
