Fund For Lake Michigan

Reducing Watershed Pollution Through Dynamic Stormwater Retention on the Roof

  • Grant Recipient: The Water Council Inc.
  • Amount: $25,000
  • Year: 2014
  • Watershed: Milwaukee River
  • Focus Area: Green Infrastructure

This project by The Water Council will use a grant from the Fund for Lake Michigan to install, test, and analyze the costs and benefits of new “green and blue” roof technology at the MMSD headquarters. The “stock and flow” catchment systems, together with standard green roof technology, should increase rainfall retention by four inches and provide MMSD with data to establish criteria for their green roofs grant program.
