The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District recognizes the importance of green infrastructure such as rain gardens, bioretention, pervious pavement, and other site-based stormwater management practices in the combined sewer area. The Green Infrastructure Grants Program for the Combined Sewer Area is open to communities and non-profit organizations in the combined sewer area interested in implementing green infrastructure projects that remove stormwater from the combined sewer system. Private, for-profit entities may also put forward projects in partnership with communities or non-profits. Applicants must demonstrate the ability to ensure the long-term ownership and maintenance of these practices.
If you would like more information on these projects or the grants program, contact Linda M. Mayer at (440) 253-2147.
