Bond Project F-120 will construct 4.2 miles channel conveyance improvements, two stormwater detention basins, and bridge and culvert modifications along Goose Creek and its tributaries. The recommended project resulted from the Goose Creek Watershed Planning Project, and will be constructed in three phases.
Phase 1, currently undergoing preliminary engineering, will construct 1.65 miles of channel conveyance improvements and a stormwater detention basin near the intersection of Rollingbrook Drive and State Highway 330.
As part of the preliminary engineering stage, the Flood Control District further refining Phase 1 of the project, including developing design alternatives for the recommended stormwater detention basin. This will include both wet-bottom and dry-bottom alternatives. Additionally, field investigations, environmental permitting and refining cost estimates will occur during this stage.
Phase 2 includes channel conveyance improvements along 1 mile of Goose Creek and constructing the second stormwater detention basin near the center of the channel
Phase 3 will construct 1 mile of channel conveyance improvements and bridge and culvert modifications or replacements along two Goose Creek tributaries north of Interstate 10
Together, the stormwater detention basins are anticipated to hold 1,230 acre-feet, or nearly 400 million gallons, of stormwater that might otherwise flood homes and businesses.
