Cowart/Bailey Pond Weir Improvement Project
The District has identified the need for improvements to the weir structures at the Bailey Detention Pond (south of Bailey; west of Wells Dr.) and the Cowart Diversion Detention Pond (between Veterans Dr. and Wells Dr.).
A drainage study of the Hood Ditch area was completed in August 2017 which identified several projects that would reduce flooding along Hood Ditch. The improvements at the Diversion Pond were included in this study and was used as a guide to scope this project.
The proposed optimization of the existing weir to Bailey Pond has also been identified by observations during rain events and the LOMR for Coward Creek Diversion improvements. These improvements will provide efficient use of the available volume in both ponds and will reduce the flooding risk to residents along the north/south streets between Bailey and CR 100.
