Abstract : This report presents the results of the alternative investigation Phase of the outfall system study for First Creek, Irondale Gulch, and DFA 0055 watersheds.

The report is divided into the following sections: (1) Introduction - reasons for the study, scope of the investigation, goals, objectives; (2) Study area description - background on soil, flood hazards, drainage problems; (3) Hydrologic analysis - summary of the work found in RIC 88188R01; (4) Evaluation of existing facilities - methodology used to define the drainage problems and flood hazards; (5) Development of alternatives - process and philosophy utilized to develop. -BKA
