Detroit’s Green Infrastructure Projects in Lower East-side Action Plan & Recovery Park areas
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 113-6. The City of Detroit is located on the Detroit River, a connecting river between Lake Huron and Lake Erie. The City will undertake two green infrastructure projects within the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department�s Near Eastside Drainage District. The first project, located in the Lower Eastside Action Plan (LEAP) area, consists of “greening” approximately 40 publicly-owned residential-sized vacant lots. The lots will be transformed into green space consisting of meadows, tree plantings or other vegetation. This project will reduce the amount of untreated stormwater draining into the City�s combined sewer system by approximately 100,000 gallons during a significant rain event. The second project will also be located in the City�s Near Eastside Drainage District, in a 32-acre section of the City�s RecoveryPark area. The City will install green infrastructure such as bioswales and porous pavement to capture and treat stormwater from roadways and other developed sites. The installation of this green infrastructure will reduce the amount of untreated stormwater draining into the City�s combined sewer system by approximately 1,000,000 gallons during a significant rain event. By reducing the volume of water flowing into the City�s combined sewer system, these two projects will help reduce the frequency and volume of combined sewer overflows.
