Irving Certified iSWM Silver
In the Summer of 2018, the City of Irving was awarded the silver iSWM designation! In August 2018, the North Central Texas Council of Governments will present the Irving city council with a plaque and street sign designating their iSWM status.
Some of the iSWM outcomes the City of Irving has focused on and implemented include:
- designing stormwater infrastructure to fully-developed land use conditions,
- requiring downstream stabilization to maintain downstream velocity conditions,
- and requiring elevated finished floor elevations for structures in the 100 year flood elevation.
Congratulations Irving for all the great work you are doing to improve drainage facilities, protect streambanks, and mitigate the risk of flooding!
