Horno Basin Ladera Ranch

Horno Basin flood-control facility provides stormwater filtration and detention capacity for the County or Orange, and also serves as wetlands habitat. GMU provided geotechnical design and construction services and performed groundwater studies for the project. We then worked with SMWD to create a system to pump water from the basin for irrigation use. GMU received ASCE’s 2004 Project of the Year Award for our efforts on this project.
