‘R' Street at Maggie's Ditch Stormwater Treatment Enhancement Project will capture and provide an element of treatment for stormwater runoff from approximately 225 acres of primarily commercial area currently discharging untreated runoff directly into Maggie's Ditch, a manmade wetland tributary that discharges to head waters of eastern Bayou Chico. The proposed project is currently listed in the approved projects under the restoration plan for Bayou Chico, and improvements will include a proprietary underground treatment unit to remove an estimated 50% of total suspended solids (TSS) and debris/floatables prior to entering Maggie's Ditch. It is estimated the system will remove approximately 20 tons of solids annually that would otherwise be discharged into Maggie's Ditch and Bayou Chico. The project will also serve to protect the already completed Maggie's Ditch Wetland Enhancement Phase I and II projects as identified in the restoration plan.
This is a collaborative effort with the School District as it will be placed on the Learning Academy's property.
