The Mimosa Acres/Willowcrest Detention Facility will expand the currently constructed detention pond on the eastern portion of the property and connect it to the proposed detention pond on the western portion. The ponds will utilize a pumped system to fully maximize the capacity and will provide additional flood mitigation for the surrounding neighborhoods of Mimosa Acres and Willowcrest.
This project is part of the Texas Water Development Board grant program 75/25 local match agreement. The District was awarded the grant to enclose the ditch with reinforced concrete boxes and to construct mitigation ponds associated with the project. The goal of these improvements is to provide flood relief to the surrounding area and localized flooding which includes the neighborhoods of Willowcrest and Willowick.
The ponds will be located at the BDD4 offices property on either sides of the back parking lot and shop.
West Pond construction starting soon.
