Freedom Park Wetlands

Oakley, CA

PACE provided wetland design for Freedom Park utilizing an existing stormwater retention and treatment facility for environmental benefits via water quality enhancement and educational programs.  In addition, the site creates aesthetic and recreational value while reducing nuisance vectors.  A formal wetland delineation and preliminary jurisdictional determination was performed for the 4 acre wetland area. A field survey was conducted by a wetlands specialist to delineate federal and state jurisdictional wetlands and waters. Upon completion of the work performed a preliminary wetland delineation technical report was prepared by the specialists describing the methods used and existing site conditions including biology, soils, and hydrology, and connectivity to jurisdictional waters.  PACE also consulted with permitting specialists, state and federal agencies to determine what permits Freedom Park Wetlands will need and provided permitting services for the City.
