The City of Venice constructed improvements to two existing beach stormwater outfalls to pre-treat stormwater and improve water quality along City beaches. The project improvements divert stormwater flows from the upland into an on-line detention pond with overflow through the existing outfalls. Post-construction monitoring concluded “the percent removal of nutrients and other pollutants was greater than anticipated” with total nitrogen load reduction at 98% and total phosphorus load reduction at 91%.
