Fallsreach Stormwater Pond Upgrade and Stream Restoration

As a part of the County's effort to protect our waters, the Fallsreach  stormwater pond and 1,400 linear feet of stream upstream from the pond were selected for upgrade to help reduce stormwater pollution draining into our streams.

Various public events have been held throughout the project phases for residents to learn about the project and to provide input on the design of the project. The project has been well received by the community.
