The City of Carlisle (City) is strongly committed to developing and implementing watershed-based conservation sensitive design strategies that effectively address the negative aspects of contemporary storm water management techniques. The Volunteer Creek Watershed (Watershed) potentially receives 1,200 tons of sediment per year from agricultural land. The City desires to convert an ineffective storm water detention basin into a bioswale and construct a sediment detention basin, with native vegetated buffer to control sediment discharge in Lake Red Rock Flood Pool. The City also desires to develop and implement innovative watershed-based engineering and conservation sensitive design strategies within the Watershed. These innovative strategies will decrease storm water flow parameters (i.e. peak flow. detention time, etc.) The City is requesting $367,500 over two (2) years for the activities outlined in the grant narrative.
