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.
