I-71-75 Terraced Reforestation

project description Green projects from a regional plan, developed by Strand Associates and Human Nature, are currently being designed and built to demonstrate the effectiveness of green infrastructure controls for CSO control in SD1’s service area. One notable project is Terraced Reforestation of Interstate Right-of-Way project, located along the east side of Interstate 71/75 in Covington. The site covers approximately 8 acres of open space hillside, and is part of a larger 17-acre drainage area. This project contains more than 4,700 feet of terraced berms that capture and infiltrate stormwater runoff from adjacent land areas. This project will reduce approximately 3.1 million gallons of annual CSO volume. This project illustrates how stormwater best management practices (BMPs) can be seamlessly woven into existing site conditions while maintaining the functional and aesthetic goals of the project. client Sanitation District No 1 of Northern Kentucky (SD1) location Covington, Kentucky project phases Planning through Implementation
