Acker Park Detention Basin Design Project


Acker Park Detention Basin Design Project

Per the Tenney Ranch Development Agreement, a detention basin was to be designed in associate with the Tenney Ranch development by the City within Acker Park. The City awarded the design contract to Shephard-Wesnitzer, Inc. (SWI) to design the regional detention basin. The basin has been designed to detain 15 acre feet of storage during larger storm events, which will reduce flooding downstream of the basin. The construction project was awarded to Fann Contracting earlier this summer. Currently the basin is excavated and the berm construction completed. During the last month of construction, the basin spillway will be constructed; gabion baskets will be installed at the basin inlet areas and below the spillway and the basin will be landscaped with native low used landscaping to blend in with the surrounding vegetation.
