BACKGROUND
The project will establish habitat along the perimeter of the wetland, incorporate a public education signage component, and create an educational partnership with the local school district. The wetland will provide drainage benefits by providing detention of stormwater on site and will be designed to use physical and biological treatment mechanisms to remove stormwater pollutants.

The scope of work for the Base Bid consists of site grading, excavation of approximately 38,000 cubic yards of material, embankment build-up, and erosion control by seeding. 

Commissioners Court awarded the project on June 19, 2013.  The project cost came in over budget at $100,900. Negotiations on the project reduced the cubic yards to 31,000 and the cost to $80,000.

Project in the amount of $80,000 is to be paid from the Coastal Management Program.
