Multi-Use Stormwater Project
By spring 2016, construction will be complete on a multimillion-dollar stormwater management facility in Sandy Springs, Georgia. As part of an effort to improve the Marsh Creek Watershed, the project aims to reduce storm flow by 50 to 90 percent. It will also improve water quality by reducing pollutants by 20 percent.
The project design will implement hardscape and softscape features, creating a greenspace with a wet pond, walking trails, and attractive landscaping. There will also be a bioretention area, hosting plant species that will remove pollutants from runoff.
The project is funded, in part, by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
