The Project includes the construction of the following elements: 1) flood protection berms consisting of soilcrete embankments between 20th and 25th Street West, 2) recharge facilities, which include diversion structures and eight spreading basins with a maximum capacity of 100 cubic feet per second (cfs) during storm events 3) a 500-foot stormwater conveyance pipe will be constructed to connect the 25th Street West storm culvert directly to the recharge basins, and 4) integration of the recharge facilities with a Nature Park at Amargosa Creek by restoring 25 acres of habitat along Amargosa Creek. The restoration efforts will include: a) removing trash from the site; b) planting native plants; c) installing a temporary irrigation system to establish newly planted vegetation; and d) removing invasive and non-desirable plant species. The project will also provide footpaths and bike paths for a safe and direct route to and from local schools for existing pedestrian traffic.
