Our friends at Sustainable Cleveland produced this video to celebrate clean water, and to better connect people to their water resources to help restore, conserve and protect this valuable asset.
This video illustrates how NEORSD, Cleveland Metroparks, Cuyahoga River Restoration, Holden Arboretum and Western Reserve Land Conservancy are all leading the way in green infrastructure. These examples show how green infrastructure can build community, beautify our neighborhoods, and clean our water.
Stage 3 of the Towpath Trail will feature green infrastructure elements including three wetlands and bioswales, which will remove stormwater from the combined sewer system, treat stormwater drainage and reduce run off pollution to the Cuyahoga River.
