Britton Pond Retrofit

Project Overview

The Barkley/Britton Road stormwater treatment conversion project modified the existing wet pond at this location to a rock plant filter design emulating the system used by WWU in treating their south campus. This project is still being monitored for effectiveness but has shown removal of approximately 50% of total phosphorus with an annual removal rate of approximately 12 lbs. from its 22 acre tributary area.
