Agler - Berrell Area Green Infrastructure
This project will construct bumpout bioretention facilities along Joyce Avenue between Denune and Genessee Avenues and along Minnesota west of Parkwood Avenue. It will also include construction of five larger regional facilities throughout the project area on parcels that are owned by the City of Columbus. New and/or larger catch basins and new storm sewers will be constructed throughout the project area to collect and convey storm flow to existing sewers or new bioretention areas.
The goal of the project is to provide detention and water quality improvement to rain water that will be redirected from the sanitary sewer system by future Blueprint projects. For more information see the Blueprint Linden project summary.
The estimated construction cost is approximately $3.4 million. Financing is being provided through a below market-rate loan through the OEPA’s Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) Program. Prior to granting this loan, the Ohio EPA required a detailed submittal from the Division of Sewerage and Drainage to determine the project’s eligibility.
The Ohio EPA has completed a Limited Environmental Review (LER) for this project. View the LER and the letter of "Notice of Issuance of a Limited Environmental Review and Final Finding of No Significant Impact to All Interested Citizens, Organizations and Government Agencies."
