PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This project involves the preliminary engineering, design and construction of a stormwater detention basin in the drainage area of Willow Creek Tributary M120-00-00. The Boudreaux Stormwater Detention Basin, tentatively named after a nearby road, is formally identified as HCFCD Unit M500-10-00. This project – along with others – was recommended by the Willow Creek Watershed Planning Study to reduce flooding risks in the watershed. Further engineering investigation will provide information to help establish the boundaries of the basin project, as well as help guide its ultimate design. Stormwater detention basins take in and temporarily store excess stormwater to reduce flooding risks.

The Boudreaux project will receive funding from 2018 HCFCD Bond ID F-106. In addition, Bond ID F-36 will provide funding for necessary property acquisition for this and other watershed projects.
