Ad Hoc detention pond by the railroad at the Hill Place development site

Please click on image to ENLARGE photo of "detention" pond inadvertently created by the piling up of tons of dirt adjacent to the railroad at the southwest corner of the Aspen Ridge townhouse site two years before the land became the Hill Place apartment-complex site.

This site actually slows runoff and erosion a small amount by holding back some stormwater. However, it drains too slowly to allow it to become empty for the next rain, at least during this rainy winter and spring in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
