Document Description
The city is proposing a 10-acre flood control retention basin on a vacant site bounded by Coachella Dr to the north, Eisenhower Dr to the east, Avenida Fernando to the south, and the Santa Rosa Mountains to the west. The project site is relatively flat and consists predominately of desert saltbush scrub, which is a natural vegetation community under the CVMSHCP. Runoff water enters the site from the steep slopes of the Santa Rosa Mountains forming short channels of varying lengths. The site is surrounded by a block wall on all downslope sides with no obvious outlet for accumulated water. The project is intended to correct this blockage by providing proper storm water outflor and storage during a flood event.
