Amendment to Blosser Bio-retention facility to expand existing drainage channel to intercept urban storm water runoff. Refined project updates design to address future maintenance concerns by removing check walls and stilling basins.

New landscaping, dog park and pocket park will be incorporated into the project. Project will result in total footprint disturbance of approx 3.5 acres and reduces soil export from 23,700 cy to 10,625 cy.
