The USCB is an important part of the Flood Control District's Marsh Creek regional flood protection master plan. The basin works in conjuntion with other facilities in the watershed to temporarily hold floodwaters waters from an extreme rainstorm and release them more slowly downstream. This significantly reduces the flood risk for Antioch, Brentwood and Oakley residents living downstream along Sand Creek and Marsh Creek.
