This project includes the construction of a detention pond, reinforced concrete pipe (RCP), and two storm drain inlets.  The project also serves as a pilot study for incorporating innovative, environmentally friendly, water harvesting and erosion mitigation techniques.

The project site is located near the intersection of Obregon Road and Saratoga Road across from Enchanted Hills Elementary School.

Two (2) informational/educational videos were developed as part of this project.  The first video illustrates the processes and techniques used during the construction of storm water detention facilities.  The second video focuses on erosion control measures and techniques that individual homeowners can incorporate on their own to reduce erosion and storm water runoff from their property.
