Neighborhood Rainwater Catchment Basins
There are green spaces, hiking trails and small parks throughout the community with a system of ditches that catch the rainwater--partially to prevent flooding, but also to put water in the ground. Some basins are lined with rock to prevent erosion and some have large drains to prevent pooling in low spots.
