We installed a gravel wetland at Walnut Creek Wetland Park. The wetland includes:
- An underground gravel reservoir that'll hold and filter stormwater runoff;
- Plant roots that will soak up and clean the water; and,
- Slowing down the flow of stormwater before it reaches Walnut Creek.
This project was partly funded by a grant from the NC Department of Environmental Quality. The grant covered some construction costs and educational art at the gravel wetland.
