CALS Research, NCSU's insight:

A large-scale water quality project in New Bern, designed NC State’s Dept. of Biological & Agriculture Engineering (BAE), received national recognition for its construction. Cape Fear Precast LLC of Jacksonville was awarded second place for a local project in the National Precast Concrete Association’s Creative Use of Precast (CUP) Awards in January.

 

The Jack Smith Creek Stormwater Project, one of the largest stormwater retrofits in NC, was designed by Cooperative Extension’s BAE Stormwater Group in CALS and involved the construction of a stormwater wetland to capture and treat runoff from a large watershed in New Bern. The innovative project can capture and treat the runoff from more than 1,000 acres of residential and commercial property.
