Project Update

City staff identified the Rodeo Grounds as an ideal location for a rainwater harvesting and aquifer recharge project. This recharge system is designed to capture the 1-yr, 10 minute storm, which is about 0.4” of rainfall. Depending on the storm frequencies throughout the year this system has the capability to recharge up to 0.87 acre feet annually. Additional benefits beyond aquifer recharge include mitigating the volume of stormwater generated from the building rooftops, and reducing the amount of animal waste found in rainfall sheet flow.
