Document Description
The proposed project is a biofiltration wetland intended to assist with water quality improvements in the Soquel Creek Lagoon during the summer months when a berm is placed below the mouth of Soquel Creek to create a swimming lagoon. The filtering system works by pumping water from a waterbody (in this case the Soquel Creek Lagoon) and circulating it through a series of perforated pipes overlain by a gravel bed and planted with wetland vegetation. An overflow allows circulated water to return to the lagoon.
