Did you know that the detention pond by Jersey Meadow Golf Course used to be a part of the golf course? That's right! The detention pond used to be another 9 holes of the golf course.
The detention basin holds 114 million gallons of storm water. It has a walking path over a mile in length around it. Soon the dog park will be located there too.
This project was started in June 2012 and completed in 2014 and was a partnership between the Harris
County Flood Control District and the City of Jersey Village.
In December 2017 the West Houston Association, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing innovative ideas to the Houston area, awarded the project the Sustainability Stars award in the following three categories:
• Investigation Star - Recognizes project sponsors who study or evaluate the use of sustainability elements in their project prior to any project implementation activities.
• Investment Star - Recognizes project sponsors who include sustainability elements in the design of their project.
• Integration Star - Recognizes project sponsors who include sustainability elements in a constructed project.
