In 1997, the City of Griffin constructed a large regional detention pond in northern Griffin, Georgia to alleviate flooding in the Waterford on Ellis Subdivision. Noting several features in and adjacent to the site, the City applied for and received a Section 319(h) Grant from the Georgia Environmental Protection Division to implement several water quality components in the pond. Using wetland filtration, the North Griffin Regional Detention Pond has proven to be an effective Best Management Practice (BMP) for improving water quality to receiving waters.
