The applicant proposes to build a 4-acre wet detention pond to control runoff for a 90- acre tract for a planned development upstream of the detention pond.

The proposed project is in the Southeast 1/4 of the Southeast 1/4 of Section 18, Township 18 North, Range 14 East, near East 91st Street and South Garnet Road, City of Tulsa, Tulsa County, Oklahoma.  The project site can be found on the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma 7.5 Minute USGS Quadrangle map at North Latitude 36.0358 and West Longitude 95.851940.

The overall purpose of this work is to provide a regional wet basin storm water detention pond.  The regional storm water detention facility would include an approximately 4-acre wet detention pond located within an 8.7-acre tract named the study area.  The detention pond is intended to serve an approximately 90-acre planned future development, located north of East 91st Street South and west of South Garnett.  The regional detention pond would be designed and sized to serve current storm water detention needs as well as anticipated future growth.

The applicant proposes to excavate approximately 4 acres of land to include a total of approximately 1,440 linear feet of intermittent stream channel and place 0.26 acre (1,150 cubic yards) of fill material into waters of the United States to create a wet basin detention pond for a future 90-acre planned development upstream of the detention pond.  The wet basin detention pond would act as a water feature for the entrance to the current development and for the future development.  At this time the applicant does not have any plans to encroach on waters of the United States when the 90-acre planned development constructed.
