Grassed Waterway in West Bloomfield

This grassed waterway project was installed on a 43 acre parcel in the Town of West Bloomfield that has been experiencing significant concentrated flows through the field, leading to erosion and loss of soil to the nearby tributary to Honeoye Creek via Bebee Creek.&nbsp; In order to control the erosion and reduce sediment and nutrient loss to nearby streams, a 1750’ ft grassed waterway with a stone lined surface inlet and stone apron outlet was installed. The waterway is 35’ Wide and 1’ deep and can pass over 80CFS of high water flow. A 6 inch underground support line was installed under the waterway to aid in drainage and allow for machinery crossing. It is estimated that this waterway will save 260 tons of soil loss over the lifespan of the best management practice.
