City and Watershed Committee to demonstrate sustainable stormwater management with parking lot reconstruction

image of streamTwo parking lots at the City Government Plaza will be under construction beginning in mid-August as part of a grant-funded project to demonstrate ways of managing stormwater that reduce the amount of runoff and pollution that reach our streams.

The project will include pervious pavement, rain gardens, and a bioswale that allow rainwater to soak into the ground and be used and naturally filtered by soil, plants and trees. The project is a partnership of Watershed Committee of the Ozarks and the City of Springfield as part of the Springfield-Greene County Urban Watershed Stewardship Project Grant (nicknamed Big Urbie).
