II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: Provide design and construction for critical flood protection improvements at key Capitol Complex buildings and facilities with historic flooding issues. This project would identify short-term and long-term critical flood protection improvements with anticipated construction of highest impact building specific flood protection improvements.
Project Justification: Storm water runoff from the foothills west of Carson City reaches the Capitol Complex down King and Curry Streets. Stormwater runoff has flooded the basements of the Attorney General’s Building and entire Department of Motor Vehicles facility. The Capitol Complex will remain vulnerable to flooding and the threat is increased since the Waterfall Fire burned off most of the east slope of the mountains in summer of 2004. All of the state owned buildings with basements are in the 100 year flood plain. Flood damage to basements and first floors of buildings is a health, safety and risk management concern to building occupants and the State. Flood damage to landscaping and parking lots is expensive to repair or replace.
Project Background Information: Planning funds were first approved by the 07 Legislature and the project was later canceled in FY 08 due to General Fund Revenue shortfalls and re-requested for the 2009 CIP. The Capitol Complex is surrounded by two main storm water drainage systems, which flow from the west to the east through Carson City. The drainage systems collect and convey storm water from Kings Canyon and Ash Canyon and their tributaries along with other storm water on city streets. Offsite flood flows originate with the eastern slope of the Carson Range and are conveyed through downtown Carson City. The capacity of Carson City’s storm drain system is severely limited due to flat slopes and undersized pipes. Flood water in 1997 inundated the Capitol Grounds, flooded the Attorney General’s Office and Hero’s Memorial basements, and made an island of the buildings in the Department of Motor Vehicles Facility. In 2006 the basements at Attorney General’s Office and Hero’s Memorial took on water; the Department of Motor Vehicles Building complex was once again an island; and the Nevada Department of Transportation yards filled up with water. The Department of Motor Vehicles gas meter, vehicle scale, and scale house were under water and the computing center subfloor flooded. The Capitol Building basement flooded and Archives is subject to basement flooding from Musser Street.
