Boling Lane Park-Loves Creek Watershed BMP Project

Funds Provided By:   319 NPS Program: $150,000

This project will implement stormwater BMPs recommended by a 2005 EEP preliminary report to reduce peak stormwater flows, Total Phosphorus (TP), Total Nitrogen (TN), and improve and maintain aquatic habitat. The focus will be primarily on a tributary to Loves Creek within Boling Lane park.

  • A series of three bioretention areas will be installed within the park to capture stormwater runoff from road culverts piped directly to the stream channel.
  • Two stormwater wetlands will be installed adjacent to the stream to capture and treat pollutants.
  • The buffer along the stream channel will be created and planted with native vegetation.
