Jefferson Avenue

The Jefferson Avenue Flood Prone Area is an upland depression with approximately 85 Acres tributary. The general flow is inwards towards a small depression located partially on Jefferson Avenue and multiple private properties. The large tributary area can be broken into 3 smaller water shed areas.

  • Tributary area “1” extends as far south as Wesley Street with an overland flow route through multiple private properties, and ponding occurs in at least one rear yard upland depression located north of Union Avenue.
  • Tributary area “2” ponds water in a depression centered on Franklin Avenue which then eventually overflows north through private properties and towards the depression on Jefferson Avenue.
  • Tributary area “3” generally flows from east to west routing through private properties until it reaches the Jefferson Avenue depression.
