Stormwater Improvement Bond Issues
Stormwater improvement bond issues provide for design and construction of urban storm drainage projects, flood reduction projects, stream rehabilitation and waterway work, design and construction of master planned basin projects, water quality projects incorporating best management practices, and preliminary engineering for basin master plans to determine future projects. These improvements reduce stormwater runoff and flooding if major rains occur, reduce flooding impacts from major stream channels, prevent or repair degraded stream channels, and improve water quality.
Antelope Park Water Quality Projects
Water quality features included in the project are bioretention cells and swales, pervious pavement, amended soils, a "green roof" and a rainwater harvesting cistern. The project also includes educational components.
EPA Technical Assistance on Green Infrastructure Provided to City of Lincoln
EPA's consultant, Tetra Tech, Inc., will work with the City's Public Works Department to develop fact sheets on five green infrastructure practices, develop strategies for reducing pollutants in the Antelope Creek watershed, and work with Lincoln Public Schools Science Focus Program on a green infrastructure design charette at the Lincoln Children's Zoo.
