UPDATE: APRIL 2020
As part of the 2020 re-evaluation of the Final Environmental Impact Statement, the schematic design was updated.
Potential Upstream Pond Location
Old Bee Caves Road near Sunset Ridge location
Maximum available storage is approximately 100 acre-feet or 32 million gallons. The surface area of the pond is approximately 13 acres.
- WHY: Ensure this project does not result in flooding impacts
- WHAT: Provide flood storage at one off-site and upstream detention pond
- HOW: Build a dam across these natural creek valleys to capture flood waters during intense rain events. The water will then slowly recede over the next hours/days
