STORMWATER DIVERSION
OMAHA, NE

This green stormwater infra-structure project cleanses first flush flows from 26 acres of the adjacent neighborhood and prevents downstream flooding.

A series of colored concrete weirs drop the flows down the ravine. Off-line bioretention gardens above the weirs help infiltrate rainwater, to recharge local groundwater.
