Prairie Landworks under contract with the city of Abilene, is constructing a detention basin to control excessive storm water runoff near N.E. 21st Street and Faith Avenue. 

As weather conditions permit, they will be conducting open burning of trees and brush cleared from the site, starting sometime Monday,  according to Lon Schrader, director of Public Works.

The burning is expected to take from 6-10 days to complete. 

The site will be routinely managed by the crew on site and safety containment measures will be conducted at the end of the workday before the crews leave the site.
