Document Description
The Ventura County Watershed Protection District (VCWPD) proposes to construct and operate the Lake Canyon Dam and Detention Basin. The project would consist of an earthfill dam and detention basin. The project project would operate in conjunction with the existing Arundell Detention Basin, located immediately southwest and downstream of the project site, to detain storm flows and capture associated debris. The project would detain the peak flows that would be expected from a 100-year storm event, while releasing 76 cubic feet per second (cfs) of water into the Arundell Detention Basin. The total design storage capacity of the project would be 197 acre-feet, which is based on the 100-year storm event.
