Geum worked as a subcontractor to DOWL, LLC to help design wetlands within the Shiloh Conservation Area (SCA) on 70 acres of land owned by the City of Billings. The project was completed in the fall of 2014. The goals of this project included:
- Treat stormwater from upstream agricultural lands and runoff from new developments
- Provide flood attenuation during large storm events
- Provide a recreational area for the City’s residents as the City expands
Geum designed wetlands for water quality improvement, including planting plans, grading plans, and substrate types. Geum also prepared the Joint Application for relevant permits (MT SPA 124, Clean Water Act Section 404 Permit and 401 Certification, and MT 318 Authorization). Geum also provided construction oversight for wetland construction and wetland planting.
