The concept is to convert the 16-acre site into a public educational/recreational wetland for environmental enthusiasts of all ages to enjoy, complete with access to the Wateree River. - photo by KBS Associates LLC
There may come a day when hardly anyone will remember that a 16-acre wastewater lagoon existed at the end of Bramblewood Plantation Road. During Camden City Council’s Sept. 12 meeting, Ken B. Simmons, of KBS Associates LLC, presented a plan to convert the former wastewater lagoon into an educational/recreation wetland environment. Step-by-step, Simmons -- whose firm also designed the city’s tennis complex that is under construction on Campbell Street -- showed how he plans to transform the site.
