Martin County/Witham Field

Drainage Improvements 

Stuart, FL

Project Summary

This project provided designs and water management permitting for the removal of the two ponds located on the east side of the airport. The two wet retention ponds that exist on the east side of the airport were evaluated; the first located along Taxiway Alpha and referred to as the Fire Pond, and the second located at the intersection of SE Aviation Way and the entrance to Stuart Jet Aviation.  

This project re-permitted these ponds to be filled in and the drainage flow to be re-directed to the new Willoughby Creek Drainage facilities located along SE Aviation Way and the golf course. The Willoughby Creek pond was enlarged to account for the volume loss of filling in the airport ponds. This provides water quality treatment as allowed under the 62-330.449 General Permit for construction, operation, maintenance, alteration, abandonment or removal of airport airside stormwater management systems.
