- Black Rascal Flood Control Project
- Merced County is proposing to implement a flood control project immediately upstream of the Black Rascal Creek Diversion Channel. The proposed detention basin and wetland area would temporarily store flow during periods of heavy rain and limit flow in the Diversion Channel to 3,000 cfs. The proposed project would include a perimeter levee surrounding a 300-acre inundation area, to accommodate up to 2,800 acre-feet of water during a 200-year storm event, and an internal levee to protect agricultural land within the basin during more frequent storms, 50 year event. The detention basin outlet would also include a series of reinforced concrete box culverts to limit flows in the diversion channel.
