Primarily a flood-control basin to control floodwater runoff, the Sepulvida Basin serves a broad range of other uses for the city, from wildlife refuge to recreational space (it houses a fishing lake, golf course, and protected parks), to water treatment facility. Many river advocates cite the basin as one of the best examples of multi-purpose green public space in the region, the Basin affording residents both natural habitats and urban recreation areas.
