Implementing Green Infrastructure in Milwaukee

Beginning in 2014, Clean Wisconsin partnered with organizations and individuals local to Milwaukee in a green infrastructure outreach project in the 30th Street Industrial Corridor on Milwaukee’s northwest side.

Green infrastructure refers to a variety of methods to manage water where it falls. This reduces the risk of basement backups and sewer overflows and improves water quality by naturally filtering stormwater runoff. Outreach and educational activities include presentations at neighborhood association meetings, rain barrel painting events, and rain garden installation demonstrations.
