The project consists of moving material into the existing ponds to shallow the basins and lowering the elevation of certain areas within the site making it more suitable for wetland restoration. A grass trail system/walking path will be constructed throughout the site at an elevation higher than the wetland restoration elevation to allow for passive recreational use.
The City will administer the bid letting and contract for the project and BWSR will reimburse the City for all construction related costs.
When grading work is complete the site will be seeded and vegetated with the proper wetland seed mix by a contractor that has been working with BWSR on the pre-grading vegetation management site preparation.
