Blueprint Clintonville: Blenheim/Glencoe Area Green Infrastructure

The Blenheim/Glencoe Area Green Infrastructure project will construct rain gardens along Blenheim Road, Northridge Road, and Chatham Road from High Street to Colerian Avenue, Acton Road from High Street to Indianola Avenue, Richards Road from Sharon Avenue to Indianola Avenue, and Fallis Road, Arden Road, and Glencoe Raod from High Street to Granden Road. It will also construct a large stormwater wetland in Whetstone Park.

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 Columbus project summary. Construction is expected to begin in fall 2016.

The estimated construction cost is approximately $6.5 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.
