Document Description
The NCCA Master Plan lays out four separate but complementary projects: (1) the Newman Environmental Wetland System (NEWS) project, an ~21-acre constructed stormwater treatment wetland that will treat the City's currently untreated stormwater prior to discharge into the Newman Wasteway for delivery to the San Joaquin River; (2) a DFW-funded wetland restoration project for GHG sequestration; (3) the Miller Ditch Treatment Wetland (MDTW) project, planned in collaboration with UC Merced's Environmental Systems Graduate Group to treat agricultural supply and tailwater; and (4) the Newman Nature Park, which is being planned with community input and may include a wide range of facilities such as a community gathering plaza, outdoor classroom areas, a nature-themed play area, and native plant, rainwise garden, and LID demonstration areas, as well as an unpaved trail network and interpretive signage.
