Controlling the GWK Basin

September 17, 2014

The GWK Retention Treatment Basin has various controls
and monitoring abilities as a thunderstorm is a dynamic
event with a starting point, a middle, and an ending point.
Some days there are multiple rain storms, other days involve
prolonged steady rain over 24 hours or more.
Weather reports involving detailed radar images give an estimate
of the amount of rain expected, timing, duration, etc.
