The Hampton Creek Wetland Area located north of West Centre Avenue and east of Angling Road consists of an approximate 85-acre wetland surrounded by commercial, medical and residential developments and The Moors Golf Club. The Hampton Creek Wetland Area receives stormwater runoff from approximately 2.55 square miles of primarily residential developments. Currently the Hampton Creek Wetland Area does not have a dedicated stormwater surface outlet and as a result, the wetlands have experienced extended periods of high water levels that are impacting the surrounding residential and commercial properties and making portions of the golf course unusable.
On July 23, 2019, City Council awarded a contract to Fishbeck (formerly Fishbeck, Thompson, Carr & Huber) to perform an environmental impacts evaluation and joint permit application for the Hampton Creek Wetland Area. The environmental impact evaluations have been completed and joint permit application preparation is underway.
