Before: Lawne Lake Environmental Resource Services by CPWG Engineering

Lake Lawne Before Restoration

Utility lines and sewer lines were unsupported and exposed to the elements.

Water quality and erosion were a concern to County officials and residents.

Affected Area: Lawne Lake Environmental Resource Services by CPWG Engineering

CPWG's Lawne Lake Rehabilitation Plan

  • Creation of a passive regional stormwater facility (RSF)
  • Pollutant abatement
  • Reduce in upstream flooding
  • Modification of the C-6 canal to store runoff
  • Solar powered irrigation system to irrigate local park
Monitoring Stations: Lawne Lake Environmental Resource Services by CPWG Engineering

CPWG Installed Monitoring Stations

  •     Measure Water Flow Rates
  •     Evaluate Water Quality
  •     Test Efficiency of the Constructed Regional Stormwater Facility
  •     Provide the Public Real-Time Information

Lawne Lake Water Quality Improvement Project

Orlando, FL

The CPWG Team approached the Lawne Lake project with the intended purpose of preserving and enhancing the native ecology of the park. The new facility design included new public information kiosks, exotic vegetation removal and native vegetation restoration, water quality treatment, as well as erosion and sedimentation control recommendations. Monitoring stations were installed to evaluate flow, water quality efficiency and effectiveness of the constructed RSF treatment and provide the public real-time, on-site information.

The CPWG Engineering water quality improvement project included the design and permitting of passive regional stormwater facility (RSF) within Barnett Park prior to its discharge to Lawne Lake (a Florida Impaired Waterbody). The design involved the modification of the C-6 canal to store additional stormwater runoff for pollutant abatement and reduce upstream flooding. A solar powered irrigation system uses the stored water to irrigate the BMX track and multi-use sport fields.
