Holiday Shores Stormwater Retrofitting Project

Stormwater Academy, University of Central Florida

The Holiday Shores Retrofitting Project was a joint effort between Walton County and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Bureau of Watershed Restoration with participation from local utility departments. Existing roadside ditches were reshaped into swales to provide pre-treatment of runoff and culverts were sized to better match the capacities needed for storm water conveyance. The watershed was divided into two sub-basins. About one-third of the contributing area was directed to a wet detention pond and the remaining two-thirds to a second generation baffle box for final treatment.
