Detroit to Test 'Blue Infrastructure'

A Detroit pilot project to divert stormwater to "natural" areas aims to prove the city will save tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars in pipeline infrastructure. Editor's note: In the March Park issue, LASN presented Milliken State Park in Detroit. The second phase of that park project includes a wetlands demonstration area that showcases nature's water filtration. Collected stormwater passes through a swirl separator to remove suspended solids and contaminants. The stormwater is then pumped into a four-foot deep sediment forebay, then into three-foot deep pools with emergent plants. Photo: SmithGroupJJR
