Capital Improvement Projects


Stormwater capital improvement projects (CIPs) are construction projects that replace or improve old stormwater drainage systems to protect water quality and reduce the risk of flooding. CIPs typically include stormwater facilities like treatment swales, vaults, and catch basins that remove pollutants from stormwater.  They may also include new beach outfall structures that protect the shoreline from erosion or reduce maintenance requirements.  Capital projects are designed to reduce the risk of flooding by improving stormwater flow capacity.  BBWARM has a CIP program based the Birch Bay Comprehensive Stormwater Plan and Subwatershed Master Plans.  Read more about our capital improvement projects and process below.
