The Long Creek Watershed Management District brought together the owners of two neighboring parcels (Fairchild Semiconductor and Texas Instruments) to install an integrated stormwater retrofit. The project highlights included:

  • Improved treatment of 18.5 acres impervious surface
  • Replaced an existing large detention pond with a gravel wetland
  • Converted 2 existing smaller detention basins into an attractive water feature 
  • Removed nearly 1 acre of impervious parking area
  • Replaced piping and other drainage structures to redirect stormwater from Fairchild facility to treatment area on Texas Instruments' parcel
  • Installed a wet vegetated treatment system
  • Installed three bioretention cells
