Stormwater Maintenance - Lake Munson Restoration Project

Welcome To The
Lake Munson Restoration Project

Lake Munson January 1999
Lake Munson January 1999

Leon County began the long-anticipated restoration of Lake Munson by constructing a 25-acre stormwater treatment facility at Lake Henrietta. The facility, located between Springhill Road and Capital Circle S.W., treats runoff before it enters Lake Munson. In addition, Munson Slough was regraded and stabilized from the restored Lake Henrietta to the beginning of Lake Munson. This reduces the erosion of the streambanks and decreases the sediment reaching Lake Munson. Click here to view the final construction report on these upstream improvements.

Future plans include restoring Lake Munson itself by removing the nutrient-rich sediment, establishing a greenway connecting Lake Henrietta to the Lake Munson park through the Apalachicola National Forest, and replacing the Lake Munson dam.
