Clean Water Management Trust Fund- Wake Forest Station
The CAAE partnered with the Town of Wake Forest to conduct a study to evaluate the efficacy of constructed wetland BMPs for treatment of storm water runoff. The constructed wetlands were designed to consist of two sub-wetlands, an east and a west wetland. The wetland site collects runoff from the Town of Wake Forest Utilities Facility and provided a retention area during storm water events. The water quality benefits of the two constructed wetlands were found to be a visible retention of suspended solids and associated pollutants in runoff from parking lots, construction soil mounds, and other land surfaces.
