Fred Fletcher Park Wetland Repairs

Stormwater System Maintenance

The Fletcher Wetland Repair project will involve repair and restoration of the man-made stormwater wetland originally constructed in 2007. Repairs are necessary to restore stormwater control measure function and improve aesthetics at the park.

The work will involve removing sediment from the forebay, removal of undesirable or invasive vegetation, and restoration and planting of desired vegetation.

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. 

The man-made wetland in Fred Fletcher Park. The plants in the wetland help soak up water and reduce pollution when it rains.
