$1,191,488.45 construction of 30.2 acre-foot detention pond with associated wetland improvements and park development completed in July 2018 using a $1,049,474.00 State of Colorado Department of Public Safety Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (FEMA) grant. Prior to construction of this project, the area north of Hwy. 50 in Orchard Mesa which utilized the B ¼ Drain for storm water was prone to flooding due to inadequate capacity of the pipe drain. The pipe drain was
converted to an open channel along the Veteran’s Memorial Park site which then could overflow into the detention pond. The detention pond was seeded and landscaped to be utilized as a park during non- storm times.
