The option to buy regional detention capacity is available to anyone. However, in order to be eligible, your project must be located such that discharge from your site will reach CDID #1’s Regional Detention Basin using existing conveyances. Primary and most secondary ditches with unrestricted flow are available for direct discharge. Some of our secondary ditches may have to be improved or hydraulically modeled to demonstrate sufficient flow in order to be considered eligible. Discharges to small ditches and finger drains are not eligible for regional detention. The participant is responsible for the cost of any additional analysis or improvements required to determine eligibility, if needed.
