Teskey Detention Pond in Bridlewood Park


The Teskey detention pond in Bridlewood Park was initially constructed in 1997 to manage rainwater flows with increasing development in the Promontory area. Since its establishment, the City has made various changes to the detention pond to keep up with the changing requirements and increased flow to the pond due to development.

The City previously identified the pond for significant improvements, including increasing the capacity, size and flow controls of the pond. City Council allocated funds for 2022 to design and construct these improvements to manage stormwater better, reduce localized flooding and enhance the ecological values of the pond. Due to environmental approval timelines, the construction will occur summer 2024.
