The City of Austin Watershed Protection Division (WPD) retained Freese and Nichols (FNI) to retrofit an existing Central Austin dry stormwater detention facility by integrating it with a new stormwater water quality wet pond. The WPD’s goal was to protect their community by reducing the impact of flooding, maintaining and improving water quality and creating a stable stream system to prevent erosion. FNI’s integration of a wet pond into the existing dry detention pond helped the WPD achieve these goals for stormwater runoff into Waller Creek.
