Hyde Park Bioretention Project, Augusta, Georgia

Built on a drained swamp area shortly after World War II, the Hyde Park community in Augusta, Georgia, has experienced numerous flooding events for years due to the large 840-acre watershed draining through its neighborhoods. Runoff from the highly urbanized area has also impacted the water quality of the downstream Rocky Creek Tributary.

To alleviate flooding in the area and improve water quality, WK Dickson provided surveying and engineering services to construct a 44-acre regional stormwater bio-retention pond with newly created wetlands.
