Landlocked Basins

There are existing land-locked subwatershed units and basins within this subwatershed that the cities have been considering for outlet drainage projects.  To protect the quality of downstream resources, local plans must either no longer consider this an option, or demonstrate how this could be achieved without impact to downstream water quantity or quality impacts. Outletting will generally be discouraged unless there is a demonstrated threat to property structures or public safety.
