Note, the City of Brentwood selected SWT Design to develop a landscape design and planting plan, prepare construction documents and provide installation oversight for the Brentwood Wetland Arboretum Restoration Project after reviewing proposals received in response to the RFP on the City of Brentwood's website for this project.
Recommendations for this wetland restoration project to help manage stormwater and improve water quality in Deer Creek came out of the DCWA Technical Advisory Group Metro Wetland Restoration Design Charrette in April 2017, sponsored by Great Rivers Greenway, City of Brentwood, and other partners. This project will be installed in a high priority focus area as identified in the 2023 Deer Creek Watershed Management Plan.
The Brentwood Wetland Arboretum Restoration Project is partially funded by City of Brentwood, Missouri Department of Conservation, Open Space STL, Great Rivers Greenway, and Forest ReLeaf of Missouri in addition to Missouri Botanical Garden’s Deer Creek Watershed Alliance Initiative Phase V, via financial support from US EPA Region 7 through the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (subgrant number G22-NPS-09), under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act.
