As part of the study, the city is collecting input from residents regarding the current drainage systems and the necessary or desired future solutions. Residents can provide input through an online survey at www.fayetteville-ar.gov/speakup.

The next steps for the study are to develop funding options for the future program, based on the depth and breadth of future service desired by city residents.
