Topic: Sweetwater Creek Stream and Wetland Restoration Project
Speaker: Kevin Middlebrooks, PE
Come hear about the ASCE Georgia Section 2013 Natural Environment Project of the Year! Gwinnett County partnered with the Georgia Piedmont Land Trust to implement a stream and wetland restoration project downstream of Old Norcross Road on Sweetwater Creek in a highly urbanized area. CH2M HILL was selected to prepare a multi-faceted design for the project that incorporated 2,000 feet of stream restoration and 6 acres of wetland restoration with the creation of an approved mitigation bank.
