City completes Hewlette's Creek stormwater wetland

READ MORE:
WILMINGTON -- Tuesday the City of Wilmington celebrated the official completion of something that is hoped will help the water quality on Hewlett's Creek. After almost five years of construction the Bethel Road stormwater wetland is fully functioning and filtering out the nutrient and bacterial pollution and improving the water supply. The City says the watershed will also improve the community with an addition of a park. Stormwater Services Manager David Mayes said, "There will be a very passive park out here with a walking trail around the perimeter of the wetland. That is actually a current city project and they are working on a design right now." The park will occupy the remaining five acres on the site, complete with picnic shelters and a one-mile trail.
