SouthEast Connector Project Uses Water Wisely

Dear Stakeholder:

Part of the SouthEast Connector project’s design is to restore and create an 80-acre self-sufficient wetland complex. One major feature of the wetlands is a diversion structure at the new Yori Drain Bridge that will divert the creek water from Yori Drain to run through a polishing wetland complex that will naturally filter the water before releasing it into Steamboat Creek. The riparian vegetation will maintain higher water quality for both Yori Drain and Steamboat Creek benefiting the environment and wildlife.

Keeping the Dust Down

Another way the project team is using water wisely is by recycling groundwater and using it for dust control. Watch the latest segment of “The Road Ahead with RTC” to learn more about the project’s use of groundwater.
