Abstract : This report recommends an environmentally designed, outdoor recreation-oriented solution to the flooding problems along Maline Creek. Maline Creek is best described as an urban storm sewer. The stream's natural features have been essentially eliminated by intense urbanization. The 25 square mile study area is located from the Lambert St. Louis International Airport, eastward through urbanized St. Louis County and the city of St. Louis, Missouri, to the Mississippi River. The object of this study is to identify comprehensively all alternative options and to recommend a solution to the problems normally associated with urban stormwater sewers such as: flooding; streambank erosion; lack of outdoor recreation; and, environmental degradation.
