STORMWATER

George & Associates worked with Franklin County School to design a coheside site for its new K-12 School located in East Point, Florida.  Prior to the school board receiving ownership of this 108 acre parcel it was utilized by FDOT as an active borrow pit.  Upon transfer of the property FDEP claimed 31.54 acres and ACOE claimed 44.34 acres of jursidictional wetlands.  G&A and Cardno Entrix worked with both agencies to identify the quality of the wetlands and to develop the appropriate wetland mitigation plan.  Ultimately a total of 16.74 acres of wetlands were utilized to meet the stormwater requirements for the development of the school site.
