Wetlands provide an excellent filter for treating stormwater runoff prior to it entering our waterways. In an effort to highlight how stormwater wetlands can be used as an alternative to the traditional stormwater pond, DEP partnered with Escambia County, the Natural Resource Conservation Service, the Florida Department of Transportation, Southgate Shopping Center, and the Bayou Chico Association to convert a commercial development holding pond into a county stormwater wetland education park. The goal was to show how such a stormwater wetland can provide an asset to the development and community.
