PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant is proposing construction of the Glenn Forest Detention Basin (P500-08-00-E001) to lower flood water surface elevations and reduce structure flooding in the Greens Bayou watershed.  The total project area is approximately 160 acres.  A total of 13.33 acres of waters of the U.S., including wetlands, are located within the project area, which includes 11.98 acres of wetlands and 1.35 acres of waters of the U.S. (HCFCD Unit No. P159-00-00).  Additionally, P100-00-00 (Greens Bayou), abutting the southern boundary of the project area, is also part of the project.  The proposed detention basin complex will consist of three interconnected detention cells, excavated to various depths and connected by culverts or pipes.  Proposed impacts would occur from construction of the detention basin complex and outfalls into Greens Bayou.
