Detention Basin

For this project, a new detention basin will be constructed near Richard Street. A detention basin is an excavated area of land that is installed near bodies of water to protect against flooding by being able to store water for a limited period of time.

The channel-type detention basin will be nearly two acres in size and will be constructed to prevent negative impacts on the Diehl Consolidated Drain for the 100-year flooding event, which is a result of a rainfall event that has the probability of occurring once every 100 years.
