Basins are a key part of achieving safe, clean waterways
Rainwater can enter the sewer system during rain events and cause a mixture of sewage and rainwater to flow untreated into our waterways. Proposed and existing storage basins—throughout our city—are designed to retain the mixture of rainwater and sewage until the rain subsides, and then gradually release it back into the sewer system for treatment.
Logan/Breckinridge Street Storage Basin
This basin is located at Logan and Breckinridge streets. When completed in late 2017, this basin will offer Beargrass Creek protection from thirteen combined sewer overflows.
