Project Description

The project will fund engineering and design (E&D) for a variety of non-structural and structural best management practices (BMPs) that would reduce nutrients and pollutants into Toulmins Spring, a creek that is listed as having impaired water quality on Alabama’s 303(d) list. The project location is at the headwaters of Toulmins Spring Branch, within the Three Mile Creek watershed in the City of Prichard, Alabama. Funding from US Environmental Protection Agency’s nonpoint source grant program (319 Grant Program for States) would likely be available to construct the project, but those funds cannot be used for E&D work. This E&D project will fill a critical funding gap and enable the actual project to be implemented.
