Lake Concord Stormwater Park – A Water Quality BMP Showcase
Abstract:The Lake Concord Stormwater Park project is located in the urban core of the city of Casselberry. Part of Casselberry's “City Center” concept, the park is a combination of urban community redevelopment and stormwater/water quality retrofits with an educational component. The park showcases multiple stormwater best management practices (BMPs), including detention, exfiltration, baffle boxes, pervious pavement, bioretention, environmental swales, stormwater reuse, native and water efficient plantings, and wetland restoration through shoreline and littoral revegetation. Educational signage within the park describes each BMP employed, and also provides visitors with information on broad watershed/water quality issues and practical BMPs they can use in their own backyards. Because the park is a redevelopment project within a highly urbanized area, its design and construction posed several challenges and resulted in several lessons learned that can be applied to redevelopment.
