Fund For Lake Michigan

Drexel Town Square Floating Wetland Islands

  • Grant Recipient: City of Oak Creek
  • Amount: $65,000
  • Year: 2013
  • Watershed: Oak Creek
  • Focus Area: Green Infrastructure

As part of their redevelopment efforts at Drexel Town Square, the City of Oak Creek will use a grant from the Fund for Lake Michigan to build a floating wetland in a new stormwater pond that drains to existing wetlands onsite. The floating constructed wetland demonstrates a new technology that will provide educational opportunities in a high-profile area and improve water quality in the wetlands onsite and in the surrounding Lake Michigan watershed.
