The Piedmont Triad Council of Governments (PTCOG), now Piedmont Triad Regional Council (PTRC) obtained an EPA 319 grant to support design and construction of an innovative stormwater wetland within Courtland Park, a park owned and operated by the City of Reidsville, NC. JEWELL Engineering Consultants led the Project Team that included the NC State University Bio/Ag Department in support of PTCOG in planning and design of the wetland.

The constructed wetland treats stormwater runoff from a developed urban watershed, thereby contributing to improved water quality in Little Troublesome Creek, the major receiving stream below the Courtland Park Wetland area. The Courtland Park Wetland was planned and designed in part to mimic a natural wetland, helping capture and treat pollutants from non-point sources within the contributory 70-acre urban watershed which drains much of an historical district of Reidsville. JEWELL’s work included surveying coordination, hydrologic analysis, hydraulic design, macro- and micro-grading plans, erosion/sediment control plan, wetland layout design, construction documents, permitting (401/404), construction observation, and project certification.
