UGRA Water and Sediment Control Basin K-4 – Kerr County

with No Comments

Construction is complete for the UGRA Water and Sediment Control Basin K-4 located in western Kerr County.  This project consisted of a 17-foot high, 125-foot long earthen embankment with a 155 foot wide earthen emergency spillway for the control of water and sediment at the Gilroy Property.  The project is located on Fessenden Branch which is a tributary to Johnson Creek.  During significant rainfall events, this basin captures and temporarily detains high flows allowing the flows to be released in a controlled manner to protect water quality and control erosion. In addition, the basin captures sediments that would otherwise degrade downstream water quality.

Construction is complete for the UGRA Water and Sediment Control Basin K-3 located in western Kerr County.  This project consisted of an 8-foot high, two-cycle labyrinth weir with an overall length of 100 feet. The weir was constructed into a creek bottom width of 54 feet. The project is located on an unnamed tributary of Johnson Creek which is a tributary of the Guadalupe River. During significant rainfall events, this basin captures and temporarily detains high flows allowing the flows to be released in a controlled manner to protect water quality and control erosion. In addition, the basin captures sediments that would otherwise degrade downstream water quality.
