The new Draa Field Stormwater Park is complete!
Come out and take a walk around the new park located at 230 N. Dixie Ave in Titusville!
The objective of the park is to provide a water quality benefit to the Indian River Lagoon and to reduce flooding within the basin. This is accomplished through stormwater infrastructure improvements and the construction of a stormwater treatment facility that uses innovative best management practices (BMP’s), which include a wet detention pond, littoral planting, wetland biofiltration treatment, pervious parking, a limestone permeable reactive barrier, and pond aerators. This facility provides a reduction in Nitrogen and Phosphorus leaving the system that helps meet the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) requirements for the lagoon. The Park, which serves as a trailhead to the East Central Regional Rail Trail, also has many amenities such as a walking trail, educational kiosks, renovated restrooms, and fountains.
The City has received significant grant funding for this project totaling over $1.5 million.
- $366,000 from the St. Johns River Water Management District FY 15 District’s Cooperative Cost Share Program (CCSP).
- $388,825 from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection FY14 Section 319 Grant Program.
- $800,000 from the Florida Legislative Funding (LI 1668A FY15).
