Have a green idea that would reduce flooding and improve water quality?
The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District wants to hear about it and they are willing to pony up some cash for good ideas.
As part of the 2013 MMSD Green Infrastructure Partnership Program, they are looking to improve water quality by reducing basement back-ups, flooding by sewer overflows and are looking to implement natural storm water management programs that capture, store or filter rainwater. The program would reimburse 50 percent of the cost of eligible expenses for chosen applicants.
In order to qualify for the program, applicants would need to provide MMSD with information about the effectiveness of their ‘green infrastructure’ idea including the costs; maintenance and outline how the project would meet storm water capture goals.
