Project description

As part of the Hinesville’s downtown redevelopment efforts, we are facilitating the installation of nature-base stormwater infrastructure elements in the city’s central downtown park.  This project will evaluate the success and performance of this installation as both a water quality and social amenity, and it will initiate a public environmental education campaign around NNBF based around citizen water quality monitoring. 

Project goal

Improve stormwater management in downtown Hinesville.  Innovate monitoring practices for these types or projects.  Increase public awareness and acceptance of NNBF.

Project status/outcomes

 Park construction is underway.  Education and outreach efforts will begin in August.
