MSD: Louisville MSD Green Infrastructure

 

msd-greenInfrastructure

Land Design & Development, Inc. was hired by the Louisville Metropolitan Sewer District to provide assistance for the MS4 program. The purpose of this portion of the project was to review the existing regulations, codes and ordinances in the metro area to determine impediments to the use of green infrastructure. The most recent MS4 permit for MSD and the metro area required that MSD review all codes, ordinance and regulations and remove the impediments to the use of green infrastructure for stormwater drainage.

LD&D reviewed the erosion prevention and sediment control ordinance and the planning and zoning regulation for MSD. In addition, LD&D identified impediments and prepared a report with recommendations for revisions and additions to the code to remove impediments and provide incentives for the inclusion of green infrastructure on future projects.
