Water Storage/Retention

The purpose of the Water Storage / Retention Program is to design and construct sites where water can be held back for a period of time.  A structure such as a small dam could be constructed in order to maintain or rehabilitate a marsh area or to temporarily hold some water back to alleviate flooding events.  In some cases, when water storage areas are created, it facilitates more effective drainage to other higher value agricultural lands downstream.
