An official website of the United States government.

Due to a lapse in appropriations, EPA websites will not be regularly updated. In the event of an environmental emergency imminently threatening the safety of human life or where necessary to protect certain property, the EPA website will be updated with appropriate information. Please note that all information on the EPA website may not be up to date, and transactions and inquiries submitted to the EPA website may not be processed or responded to until appropriations are enacted.

We've made some changes to EPA.gov. If the information you are looking for is not here, you may be able to find it on the EPA Web Archive or the January 19, 2017 Web Snapshot.

CSO130 Green Infrastructure Project

The CSO130 project in the Story Avenue/Butchertown area includes tree wells and permeable pavers that infiltrate stormwater to off-load the sewer system.  Louisville Metropolitan Sewer District monitored the performance of the permeable pavers and tree boxes using time-domain reflectometers, water level sensors, thermistors and passive capillary lysimeters.  This is part of the G3 Green Streets Success Stories Series.
