Algoma addresses storm water flooding

The City of Algoma is going green when it comes to controlling storm water and snow runoff while also protecting Crescent Beach.  The city will  put a plan for a bioswale, or flood water retention pond, out for bids in January.  Bioswales and rain gardens are being looked at by communities to ease the runoff loads on storm sewers.  Matt Murphy, Algoma Public Works Director, says the bioswale project is the first of its kind for the city, which is looking for ways to divert runoff from going directly into Lake Michigan.



The City of Green Bay is looking at expanded use of bioswales and rain gardens to reduce flooding that has occurred with repeated torrential rain falls and changing climate conditions.
