Located in Allegan County, Sunnyside Hog Farm received funding from Project Clarity, a nonprofit dedicated to remediating the water quality issues of Lake Macatawa and the Macatawa Watershed. Project Clarity fulfilled the grant by collaborating with Interface H₂O to implement a grass waterway system to stop the soil loss and erosion happening on Sunnyside Hog Farm.
Interface H₂O designed and selected which products would produce the best results. Interface H₂O supplied 1,000 square feet of Flexamat® for erosion control and 300 linear feet of Diamond Sock to filter sediment. The construction team then hydroseeded the 1,000 square feet of grass waterway.
Now, Sunnyside Hog Farm is not experiencing downstream sedimentation. The new system will also begin the purification process before the water enters back into the natural water cycle.
