Forged in fire and heavy manufacturing, the original location of Wisconsin’s capitol has survived a recession and built a renewed spirit. Beloit is part of the Rock River Stormwater Group and is located in Rock County near the southern border of Wisconsin. The city of 37,000 people is located near Interstate 39/90 & I-43 interchange. Over 1,000,000 tourists visit Beloit annually, to celebrate the legacy, strength, beauty, and diversity of the city. Popular attractions include the charming downtown, historic neighborhoods, and the gorgeous Turtle Creek and Rock River waterfronts.
The city is planning for a few detention pond modifications in 2018. Detention ponds (detention basins) are installed nearby bodies of water to prevent flooding and erosion. A dry regional detention basin in the Gateway Industrial Park will be re-graded to allow for proper drainage so that the pond can be maintained better. In addition, two wet ponds at the city’s golf course will have their clay liner replaced so that the basins will retain water better.
