Title:Managing Stormwater in South Lawndale Through Physical Planning and Urban Design
Author(s):Joseph, Wendell T.
Contributor(s):Deal, Brian M.
Subject(s):Stormwater Management
Geographic Coverage:South Lawndale, Illinois
Abstract:About 99% of Chicago's sewers collect stormwater and sanitary sewage in the same pipes and direct the combination to one of the MWRD water reclamation plants for treatment before discharge. Heavy rain events cause problems with this system, with overflow being discharged into the river and canal systems. This project seeks to address two major questions and concerns: What are the different ways the City of Chicago can explore to better manage stormwater runoff? How can it address the substantial lack of parks and open spaces and increase access to them?
