Project Description

Septic tanks and untreated stormwater runoff are still significant sources of pollutants to impaired Bayou Chico, an important habitat area within the Pensacola Bay watershed. This project activity includes the design, permitting of stormwater treatment facilities and connection of septic tanks to new central sewer infrastructure. This project will reduce sediment and nutrient loadings to Bayou Chico, reduce Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), reduce total suspended solids (TSS), reduce turbidity, increase water clarity, and improve light penetration for photosynthesis to enable expansion of submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) and emergent marsh habitat.
