Poppleton Creek Wet Detention Pond

Stormwater Academy, University of Central Florida

Final report describing and documenting the construction and monitoring of the Poppleton Creek wet detention system implemented by the City of Stuart to reduce stormwater pollutant loadings discharged to impaired waters. Monitoring was conducted over a nine month period but only two storms resulted in a discharge from the system due to significant ground water infiltration. Accordingly, during this period of time the system demonstrated high levels of load reduction for both TN (43%) and TP (87%).
