Following a devastating 1999 storm that flooded many homes in the Bee Branch Watershed, the City of Dubuque authorized an engineering study called the Drainage Basin Master Plan (DBMP) as part of its stormwater management. Completed in the fall of 2001, the DBMP determined that approximately 1,150 homes and businesses are at risk of flood damage during heavy rains.

The DBMP also recommended three projects to eliminate the risk of flood damage including the Carter Road Detention Basin. It was completed in the spring of 2004 for $1,100,000 and helps with stormwater infiltration.
