Woods Run Stormwater Project: Phase Two

In Planning Green Stormwater

Riverview Park is a city park located in the Perry North neighborhood. This project will use green stormwater infrastructure in the park to capture rainwater runoff, stabilize streams, and redirect and store stream water.

Progress & Status

Phase One: Riverview Avenue

Phase Two: Mairdale Avenue
