Two Stormwater Basins Selected to Get Some Needed TLC
Detention basins are often an overlooked part of our community. Most people think that they fill up with stormwater when it rains, but never give them a second thought. The truth is, detention basins can help keep our water supply and ecosystem clean and healthy. Detention basins help remove debris and filter pollutants from water before it makes its way into the water table or streams.
As part of the Dry Branch Watershed: Clear Stormwater and Green Parks Project, the City is working with property owners to make water quality improvements at the basins at Huntsdale Subdivision and Oasis Kwik Carwash. The goal is to reduce maintenance and improve aesthetics while also increasing each basin's ability to remove debris and pollutants from runoff water.
