Checking in on Jaycee Park, an innovative stormwater solution

Education, Environmental

Posted on August 29th, 2019

Clay Barber, our new Environmental Projects Coordinator, went out with your Pamlico-Tar Riverkeeper this week to check on our Jaycee Park wetland’s current condition after it’s had a while to do its job filtering stormwater runoff. Clay says, “We want to help the city of Greenville educate people on the function and purpose of constructed wetlands, and devise a solid monitoring/maintenance plan the city can use for the future.”

Polluted stormwater runoff is a major issue for your waterways – and Sound Rivers is committed to working to mitigate it where we can. In addition to Jaycee Park and other campuses in Greenville, we’re also partnering with Craven County Schools to implement stormwater management projects at middle and high schools.
