City of Tulsa leaders announced the completion of the $2.2 million Crow Creek Flood Control Project Monday morning in Florence Park South.

Mayor Dewey Bartlett said the flood mitigation project lowers the flood risk for 62 neighborhood homes. The project cost the city $700,000 from the stormwater utility fee while FEMA financed $1.5 million through a hazard mitigation grant.

The homes in the Florence Park neighborhood have had repeated losses on flood insurance since the construction of the Broken Arrow Expressway.

The project consists of three blocks of an underground storm sewer system and a new stormwater detention site at East 21st Place and South Delaware Court, according to a news release.

"The Crow Creek Flood Control project is a partnered solution to a historic problem for this area," Mayor Bartlett said.

Bartlett, Director of the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management Albert Ashwood and City Councilors G.T. Bynum and Blake Ewing were some of the officials present at the announcement.
