Flood Protection

Current Rocky Ripple Flood Protection Status

The town of Rocky Ripple has an agreement with the City of Indianapolis to build a floodwall along White River to protect our town.  The floodwall is a funded project to build a combination of earthen levee and t-wall or I-wall construction that will offer 100 year flood protection for the town's homes and be FEMA accredited when complete.  The project is currently in the planning stages and construction is anticipated to begin by 2023.  For the most up to date information about flood protection developments, attend the monthly Rocky Ripple Town Council meetings (second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 pm) and/or review the Rocky Ripple Town Council meeting minutes , News and Notices and Rocky Ripple ENews on this website.

  • DPW has provided use with an example of a similar public access on White River that will be constructed in Rocky Ripple where our current town hall is. This example is located at Chevy Dam on White River and is located just south of Washington street. You can see the aerial photo here.
