Stream Restoration at Mill Creek – Nolensville, TN

STORMWATER CONTROL MEASURES INCREASE RESILIENCY OF MILL CREEK

With grant funding from the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), the Compact applied the latest principles of bioretention and regenerative stormwater conveyances on the campus of Nolensville High School adjacent to Mill Creek. Over the course of 18 months, the project team completed a series of three stormwater retrofit sites, stream habitat enhancements, extensive riparian restoration activities, and numerous educational programs on the campus. In a separate but related project, a low head dam removal was also completed nearby downstream of the campus.
