The Crossroads District of Kansas City, Missouri is an urban area that receives runoff from many other parts of the city. More than 1,800 acres of drainage area supply runoff to this district and have many different land use types including urban, residential, commercial, and parkland. This area has challenges draining the rainwater it receives. To alleviate the runoff concerns of the Crossroads District, this watershed analysis looks to contain water higher in the watershed and prevent the volume of water from reaching the quantities currently being captured by the city’s current drainage infrastructure. The study will look to reduce the runoff volumes in the most economical manner possible while addressing the concerns of property owners, residents, interested government agencies, and city leaders.
