Reay Creek Detention Pond

Total Estimate Cost:  $675K
Timeline:  Continuing from 2017 - Spring 2018 expected completion

Construction of a 5,000m3 stormwater detention pond within Reay Creek.  This pond and outlet structure will provide a controlled discharge rate that reduces downstream flow, in an effort to mitigate soil erosion and improve aquatic habitat.  The completed installation will better manage stormwater flows leaving airport property and is sized to accommodate future growth and expansion of impermeable surfaces.  The project includes excavation of contaminated sedimentation from the creek bed, as well as the construction of a sediment trap to reduce future sedimentation leaving airport property.
