Douglas County will inspect and maintain the new Kahle wet basin annually and after large storms. Douglas County will conduct BMP RAM annually with NDEP. The forebay will be maintained by removing sediment and debris when sediment accumulates to a depth of one foot. The wet basin has a benchmark value for material accumulation of 0 feet and a threshold of a 50% decline (1.5 feet). The benchmark value for vegetative cover is 60% and the threshold is +/-15%. This is in line with TRPA’s BMP Handbook. Vegetation will be removed when nears the threshold of 75%. Vegetation will be removed by an excavator and by hand. DCWB0002 is a wet basin on the Kahle Community Center property. It takes runoff from 20702 (Kingsbury Grade). Because the basin is located on Douglas County property, Douglas County staff will perform inspection and maintenance of the basin. The wet basin has a benchmark and threshold value the same as the new wet basin.
It is the responsibility of Douglas County to monitor all drainage improvements and treatment BMPs. Douglas County inspects the drop inlets in the roads within the catchment once a year in the summer, and after large storm events. BMP RAM is conducted in the summer months.
DCWB0002 was last maintained the summer of 2018.
