"The Board is extremely proud of the fact that TIRZ 17 has added approximately 50 acre-feet of new storm water detention to the area in the last 24 months. And we are even more excited about the fact that our current pipeline of capital projects will allow approximately 100 acre-feet of new storm water detention to the area in the next 36 months."
