Camp Creek Improvements Underway at Lilburn City Park

People will be able to access the creek at the back of the City Park once the improvements are finished.

Work got underway to improve Camp Creek in Lilburn City Park recently, a project that will help prevent erosion, improve the quality of the water and give people access to the creek.

The plan is to relocate 800 feet of the creek and convert the present channel into a bio-retention stormwater treatment area.

New plants and trees will be going in as well as a walkway between the creek and the stormwater treatment area, said Doug Stacks, director of planning and development for the city.

The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners in December approved a contract with Georgia Development Partners, LLC, to carry out the $793,203.43 Gwinnett stormwater utility project.

The project will include water quality treatment and erosion protection, and it will redirect flood flows.

So sad to see what has happened to the ecology of this once beautiful stand of trees and undergrowth habitat for animals.
