Flood basin

Update item information
Inventory Control Number BC050
Title Flood basin
Subject Valley; flood plain; retention basin
Description Flood retention basins like the one at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon can mitigate the effects of heavy runoff by capturing high flow and easing it back into the streambed at measured intervals. The Big Cottonwood Creek streambed is so porous that the basin loses 8 cfs of water to percolation through the rocks.
Drainage Big Cottonwood Creek
