The goal of the City of New Bern’s innovative stormwater/wetland improvement project, Duffyfield Community Stormwater Enhancements, is to transform a community liability to a community asset by utilizing city owned parcels and undevelopable FEMA buy-out repetitive loss properties to substantially improve water quality, mitigate localized flooding during routine storm events, and create a catalyst for community investment as a community passive recreation area.
Duffyfield Community Stormwater/Wetland Enhancements will create a 5 ac+/- multifunction urban stormwater treatment facility designed to function as an urban wetland by utilizing blighted land and transforming it into a stormwater retention and treatment network, that will improve community health, serve as a passive recreational park, and spur investment in a historically underserved community.
