In 2012, after a severe rain event that impacted the Lansdowne/Churchill Neighborhood with flooding and overland water flow, the City of Ann Arbor embarked on a study to evaluate opportunities for stormwaterLansdowne and Churchill project map image.png management improvements in the Upper Malletts Cr​eek drainage area to help mitigate impacts from such storms. Several recommendations from the study were incorporated into the city's Capital Improvement Plan, including a large stormwater detention basin at Churchill Downs Park. The city commenced with the planning and design for this project in 2016. 

​​Washtenaw County Resources will be responsible for performing or contracting for the project consistent with best management practices including soil erosion and sedimentation control.
