Joplin Tributary is a large tributary to Cherry Creek and is approximately 9,700 feet in length. The downstream half of the tributary runs through Cherry Creek State Park where it crosses multiple park trails, and the other half upstream of S. Parker Rd. conveys runoff from dense, mixed-use developments comprised of commercial big box stores and single- and multi-family developments in the Cities of Aurora and Centennial. The Joplin watershed combines a 360-acre area in the City of Aurora, a 218-acre area in the City of Centennial, and a 198-acre area in unincorporated Arapahoe County. SEMSWA serves the City of Centennial area and approximately 59 acres of unincorporated Arapahoe County.
Joplin Tributary is included in the FHAD. Due to the built-out nature of this basin, future land use hydrology was used for the FHAD and is considered equal to existing for Joplin Tributary.
See the final Baseline Hydrology Report and FHAD Report under the Reports tab for additional information.
