Over one mile of the Partridge Creek (Gloede Drain) flows through an area of 50 acres which was previously a golf course. The area included several adjacent pocket wetlands. The existing site consisted of aquatic and terrestrial invasive species, eroded bank regions along the drain corridor, fragmented wetland areas, and degraded golf cart paths that narrow the channel width and obstruct flows. The project was separated into four phases that included: Invasive Plant Species Removal, Gloede Drain Natural Channel Design Restoration, Wetland Restoration, and Oak Openings Restoration.
HRC brought together a team of professional subject matter experts to assist the Macomb County Public Works Commissioner’s Office in the design and construction of two miles of green infrastructure enhancements to improve water quality entering the Red Run Drain.
HRC was retained by the City of Rochester Hills to provide engineering, structural design, surveying, material testing, and construction oversight for recreation, stormwater, and habitat enhancements at Innovation Hills, which is owned by the City.
Hubbell, Roth & Clark, Inc. (HRC) prepared plans and specifications and provided construction administration services for this infrastructure, road and alley project for the City of Howell.
