Fred Fletcher Park Wetland Repairs

Stormwater System Maintenance

We are repairing the man-made wetland at Fred Fletcher Park.The wetland is 10 years old. It's no longer functioning like it should. 

There are also invasive and overgrown plants in the wetland. We need to get rid of these plants before doing repairs.

Planning

We are working with the consultant to develop a plan to:

  • Remove invasive plants; and,
  • Repair the wetland.

The plan should be complete in the fall with repairs beginning in Spring 2022.

Removing Invasive Plants - Summer 2021

We are removing invasive plants before making repairs. You'll see crews spraying the area with herbicides while you're at the park. The herbicides may impact some native plants, but we will be re-planting during repairs.  

About the Man-made Wetland

The wetland captures stormwater from nearby streets and park. The plants filter out pollution, which protects a stream called Pigeon House Branch.
