On this site, it was BGC's duty to construct 47.87 acres of wetland mitigation within a span of 80.66 acres. It assists with regulatory wetland mitigation by creating a buffer between the mitigation site and the stormwater facility while creating a freshwater marsh bottom with a protective six inch layer of muck. Designed to remove 1,200 pounds of phosphorus and 1,600 pounds of nitrogen annually, this project proved to improve water quality and more habitats for wildlife in he area, particularly wetland birds. Those 63-acre stretch of water habitat restoration and water treatment are set to improve quality of life as well, as the city has plans for hiking trails and picnic areas set in it's future.
