The project constructs an approximately 35 acre-foot detention basin. A weir will be constructed at the north bank of Florin Creek at Florin Creek Park to allow floodwaters to spill into the park in storm events exceeding an approximate 25-year storm. Lower flows of more frequent events will be allowed to enter a portion of the basin.
