The Milwaukee Regional Green Infrastructure Plan documents how to capture the first 0.5-inch of rainfall on impervious surfaces.
The Milwaukee region has transformed its approach to managing stormwater in sanitary and combined stormwater/sanitary pipes. Looking to the future, green infrastructure is one piece of the multi-tiered approach to meeting the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District’s (MMSD’s) 2035 Vision for zero basement backups, zero overflows, and improved water quality. The Regional Green Infrastructure Plan documents how to meet the 2035 Vision goal of capturing the first 0.5-inch of rainfall on impervious surfaces, the equivalent of 740 million gallons of stormwater storage.
