Stony Creek Feasibility Study
The Neighborhoods of James Place, Arrowhead, and Wellington Northeast in Noblesville have been concerned about the erosion and stream flow changes they have seen in Stony Creek over the past several years. These neighborhoods have been working with the Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) to see what could be done to get their stream back. After observing the negative resource concerns to a valuable natural area in our urban landscape, the SWCD decided to pursue an engineering feasibility study to help determine what can be done to alleviate the erosion and other concerns in the area. With the help of DNR Lake and River Enhancement (LARE) funding, the SWCD was able to hire FlatLand Resources (FLR). Through this study we hope to find out what can be done to improve the erosion situation, increase wildlife and aquatic habitat, and return this valuable natural resource to a high quality site within our community

Our intention is to make our variety of planning and “green” designbuild
‘knowledge bases’ available to you throughout the implementation
process. We want to see things “on the ground” and desire - more than
anything - to assist you to get your ideas off the shelf, off ‘paper’, and
into geospatial reality. The projects featured in this document showcase
the utilization of green infrastructure in creative and cost-effective ways.
MANAGERS/ FUND PROCUREMENT
FLR has a long history of project management and fund procurement.
We can help guide the community through the RFP process and bid
document development as well as through the hiring and managing of
day to day project work flows. We have established relationships with
local and regional foundations and have worked extensively through State
and Federal grant sources. We want the opportunity to help you find
additional funding and will assist in developing realistic cost-estimates
and funding matrices for grant applications.
