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 W. 32nd Street Detention Basin. Construction started in the summer of 2008 and was completed by the spring of 2009 for $4,000,000.

In addition to helping with the stormwater runoff, this project included planting native prairie grasses on the slope down to the water's edge. This has restored natural habitat for various birds and wildlife.
