Water and Sediment Control Project in South Bristol

This project consists of a ½ acre water and sediment control basin and 950 feet of underground pipe to eliminate a severe gully erosion problem on a Vineyard operation located directly on the hillside of Canandaigua Lake. The installed upland basin can collect and hold up to 20,000 cubic feet of water that enters the basin at volumes up to 5.5 cubic feet per second and has an adjustable outlet to slow this release rate for a water volume reduction of 80% at the project site. This project also involved pulling back many vineyard rows to repair the existing gully erosion damage and provided a stable underground outlet system, that when combined with the basin, saves 32 tons of soil per year.
