The El Mirage Basin/Bool Park project included construction of a 28 acre mutli-use active recreation park and detention basin in El Mirage. The project transformed the existing basin, which was previously a rough-graded eyesore, into a showcase park that has quickly become the pride of area residents. The improvements consisted of 91,000 cubic yards of earthwork, 155 cubic-yards of structural concrete placed for headwall and drainage structures, 35,000 square yards of turf, and significant drainage channel improvements including vertical grade adjustments in excess of 14 feet, and storm drain installation.
