Urban nonpoint source pollution is a major water quality problem in the Pamlico-Tar River watershed. The purpose of this project was to plan, construct, and maintain a 1.75-acre, 500,000 cubic foot stormwater detention pond. The facility will serve as a best management practice for removing nutrients and heavy metals from stormwater runoff within a 200-acre watershed that is representative of typical urban land uses. This project also provided a case study of the experiences of a municipal staff in the development, planning, and implementation of a stormwater BMP. This report discusses various administrative and logistical problems that were encountered during site selection, proposal development, and project start-up. An emphasis on interdepartmental and interagency cooperation resulted in the successful design and construction of the BMP. Project area descriptions and specifications are provided in detail.
