This project includes a number of water quantity and quality control measures to be implemented in the Nicholasville Road area adjacent to Commonwealth Stadium. Seven detention basins were enlarged or modified within the 240-acre watershed to accommodate the 100-year 24 hour storm and BMP's such as bio-infiltration swales, biorentention, vegetative buffers, hydrodynamic separators and stream restoration were implemented and will be monitored over a 3 year period to measure effectiveness in treating water quality. Additionally, a variety of utility relocations along Shawneetown Drive and Alumni Drive took place, Shawneetown Drive was permanently removed and upgrades were made at the upstream side of the culvert on Nicholasville Road. With the addition of a shared use path, the project serves a dual purpose as a passive park including concealed stormwater management attributes that will not be easily discernible.
