Greetings,

Welcome to the Fund for Lake Michigan Stormwater Grant Project Blog, which will keep you posted with news and information throughout the project. The grant funding will be used to:

  • Complete a stormwater flow path model for the Pelham-Heath neighborhood (bound by East Brown Deer Road to the north; North Lake Drive to the east; the Village of Fox Point to the south; and, the railroad tracks to the west).
  • Develop three (3) different ditch prototypes which can be implemented in difficult drainage situations (e.g. flat ditches, steep ditches, etc.).
  • Engage with residents and provide educational materials.

In addition to the blog, we have a dedicated project webpage, which includes educational pieces, the professionally-engineered flow path model, and meeting information. Stay tuned as more updates will be coming soon!
