This basin, located above Lake Augusta near Norton Ave on 100th Street NW (Wright County), serves to slow the flow of water downhill to Lake Augusta. This basin was constructed to correct a developing erosion problem that was sending a large amount of sediment into Lake Augusta. By allowing runoff to pond in the basin during rain events rather than gouging the hillside, sediment is kept on the land instead of in the lake.
