East Towne Detention Basin Improvements
Construction continues to move forward with the wet detention cells being excavated and stormsewer construction continuing. Anticipated completion by 11/30/23
This project consists of Improvements to the existing East Towne Detention Basin. This will be done with the addition of two engineered wet detention cells within the existing detention basin limits. The current detention basin was designed prior to current stormwater requirements and accepts approximately 189.1 acres of fully developed commercial runoff. The improvements will be designed to improve the treatment of the stormwater for sediment, phosphorus, trash and peak flow. Along with stormwater improvements, maintenance access for the proposed wet detention cells will added and the constructed areas will be seeded and maintained.
The project is located within an existing detention basin on the east side of Madison. South of East Springs Drive and East of Zeier Road.
