Hidden Hollow Subdivision Improvements
The Hidden Hollow Subdivision Storm Sewer Management System Project has reached substantial completion! Over 500 linear feet of storm sewer was installed to provide flood relief, as well as a new pond outlet pipe for proper drainage. The project is now in the restoration phase as we wait for vegetative roots to take hold and stabilize the disturbed areas.
Along the disturbed areas, the wetlands were reshaped and blended to the adjacent grades. These areas were next treated with fertilizer to encourage growth, and the "stormwater" seed mix was applied to restore vegetation. Erosion control blanket was installed overall all restored areas to reinforce and quicken growth. Once restored, this drainage area will function better for flood control, as well as improving storm water quality as it flows through the nearby interconnected wetland and waterways.
Did you know there are two wetland types within the boundaries of the Hidden Hollow project? They are classified by the National Wetlands Inventory, which provided by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. The two types are explained below:
Before we could conduct work within these wetlands, we submitted an application and a proposed work description. Using this tool, you can learn about your local wetlands and build an understanding of the local waterways. It also provides additional resources and helpful seasonal information!
