|Parking lot before construction|
In spring of 2016, the Madison Township administration building parking lot was renovated to clean and reduce stormwater runoff to Church Creek and Lake Erie. The newly renovated lot includes two bioretention cells and 2,760 square feet of permeable pavement. These systems help the parking lot behave more like a natural landscape, mimicking natural process to help water soak into the ground where it’s absorbed and filtered by soil, gravel and plant roots. This keeps rainwater out of storm sewers, prevents sewer backups and flooding, and reduces pollution that would otherwise flow to unprotected waterways.
Chagrin River Watershed Partners, Inc. and Lake County Stormwater Management Department assisted the Township with this project.
