Editor: I am all for recharge basins – if done right. The recharge basins put in by the county and engineered by Nick Hont near Valle Vista are great examples of properly placed recharge basins. They receive water from undeveloped basins and are located near the mountain front.

I am concerned about the location of the proposed Mohave Wash/Rattlesnake Wash recharge basin location for two reasons. First, Mohave Wash drains the basin where there is all the urban development of the hilltop area, and second, it’s located relatively far from the mountain front.
