Hurricane Resilient Babcock Ranch Doubles Down on Smart Stormwater Ponds
Today marks the start of the 2023 Atlantic hurricane season, and the devasting impact of last season’s Hurricane Ian isn’t far from the minds of many Floridians, particularly those living in the highly impacted region of Southwest Florida. The financial toll from flooding left in the wake of Hurricane Ian is estimated to range from $18 billion to $35 billion.
IN THE NEWS: Florida Trend ‘Smart’ Pond
As Category 4 Hurricane Ian approached in late September, a “smart” retention pond on S.R. 45 near Port Tampa Bay captured 175,000 cubic feet of the polluted flow before it hit Tampa Bay. Technology in the pond continuously assesses its contents and rainfall forecasts to initiate an automatic release of partly filtered contents before a storm comes ashore. Operators can also remotely lower the water levels when a storm approaches.
