Gobernadora Multi-Purpose Basin

This multi-purpose basin at the south end of Coto de Caza serves three primary uses: water quality, flood detention, and non-domestic water harvesting. GMU has provided the investigation, design, and construction services for this complex project. Geotechnical design constraints included shallow groundwater, liquefiable soils, and challenging grading logistics. Stakeholders included the County of Orange, Santa Margarita Water District, and Rancho Mission Viejo.
