This map approximates the flow and drainage patterns based on the topography.  Very little of the stormwater falling on the ground actually drains towards the right-of-way where it could be collected in the curb and gutter on Lorimer and diverted to, ultimately, the creek.  Instead, most of the stormwater along this block hits the ground and, instead of shedding toward the street, sheds directly toward the creek and Onslow Road.
