New dams and detention basins in store for Omaha metro
February 20, 2009
The Papillion Creek Watershed Partnership
, an organization made up of local governments and natural-resource districts
in the Omaha metro area, has unveiled its latest set of plans
for watershed development and stormwater management for the next 30 years. Their recommendations include 27 new detention basins (for protection of water quality and retention of high stormwater flows), as well as the construction of seven new dams
over the next few years. Stormwater detention and treatment
has become increasingly important to local governments as Federal regulatory attention to the volume and quality of stormwater runoff has increased.
We can help you with many types of stormwater-control products
, including geomembrane liners
for detention basins and tanks for stormwater detention around construction sites
, as well as stormwater pumping stations
and water-quality sensors and monitors
. Please feel free to contact us
with your questions.
