Bill Gregory Stormwater Park Project

Bill Gregory Stormwater men working

In December 2014, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) awarded over $11 million from its Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund to fund a series of six stormwater treatment and stream restoration projects designed to aid in the restoration of our “beautiful bayou.” One of those projects was the Bill Gregory Park Regional Stormwater Treatment Facility Project. 

STREET RESURFACING AND NATURAL GAS DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS

A city-wide program is underway to resurface more than 1,800 blocks, or approximately 119-miles of city streets and roadways. In addition, Pensacola Energy is replacing 46-miles of obsolete cast-iron natural gas main.
