Storm Water Overview:
Identifying Areas for Opportunity
• Limited Real Estate
• Construction Costs and Budget
Constraints
• Future Maintenance – Responsibility and
Costs
• Regulations and Requirements
• Community Input
• Utilities
• Hazardous Materials

Storm Water Overview:
Identifying Areas for
Opportunity

Storm Water Overview:
Design Partnering
• Extensive coordination with the City of
Milwaukee and DNR to identify water
quality improvements for the area

Concept drawings from
design phase.

Storm Water Overview:
Storm Sewer System
I-794 East/West:
Complete Storm Sewer
Replacement
Lake Interchange:
Replacement of Above
Ground System
Hoan Bridge:
Downspouts, select catch
basins, select outfall
replacement/pipe lining

Storm Water Overview:

Proposed Conditions –
Water Quality
Project Scope considered “Minor
Reconstruction”
 Same Urban Footprint
 No increase in impervious
 No change in alignment
 No increase in peak flows
 TRANS 401 = Project Does Not require
reduction in Total Suspended Solids (TSS)

Proposed Peak Flows –
Water Quantity
Peak Flow Controls Not Needed
 No localized flooding
 No increase in new impervious
 Lake Michigan or Milwaukee River
downstream
 Maintaining Existing Drainage Patterns and
Outfall Locations

Storm Water Features Summary

Bio-Filtration Basins. $75,000. 83% TSS
Upgraded Catch Basins. $642,000. 26 %
TSS
Wet Detention Vault. $20,000. 50% TSS
 Maintenance

of Existing Vaults Replace
Cartridges. $3,000. 80% TSS
 Maintain Treatment Unit. 20% TSS


Total BMP Cost = $ 740,000
Now Treating 32 acres vs. 0.25 acres
Huge Improvement in TSS Removal

Keys for Success

Working together to provide improvements,
