Final report describing and documenting the construction and monitoring of the Tangerine Avenue retention system implemented by the City of Gulfport to reduce stormwater pollutant loadings discharged to impaired waters. Monitoring was conducted over a eight month period but only two storms resulted in a discharge from the system. Accordingly, due to the volume reduction associated with the infiltration of stormwater, the annual average annual pollutant load reduction is equal to 60% for all parameters.
