- Following the July 2012 storm event, DWM completed eight short-term projects to provide immediate relief to residents including construction of bioswales along Crumley Street and in Rosa Burney Park and rain garden installation near Dunbar Elementary School and on Ira and Sydney streets.
- In February 2014, DWM completed construction of a five-million gallon storage vault underneath the media parking lot at Turner Field as part of the City’s long-term goal to alleviate area flooding.
- The Department is currently installing approximately six miles of permeable pavers in Peoplestown, Mechanicsville and Summerhill communities. Permeable pavers are designed to intercept, detain and eventually release stormwater that falls on roadways and adjacent sidewalks.
