Project Description

The Tri-State Marine Wetland project converted an untreated gravel lot into a 60,625 square foot wetland complex consisting of a grass swale, two bioswales, and a stormwater management wet pond ringed by native wetland trees, shrubs, and plants. The project stood out because of the landowner-led effort to treat stormwater while prioritizing habitat on a large scale.
