Hawks Prairie Ponds and Recharge Basins

At this site, Class A Reclaimed Water flows through several wetland ponds before entering shallow basins where it soaks slowly into the ground. This park-like setting is a great place to walk, view wildlife, and learn more about reclaimed water at several informational kiosks.

Hours:

The site is open to the public dawn to dusk, each day.
