GREATER CLEVELAND AREA - NORTHEAST OHIO REGIONAL SEWER DISTRICT

1,655 views

Published on

NEORSD is guiding Cleveland and 61 surrounding communities through two significant wet weather issues – CSOs and stormwater – at a time when Northeast Ohio is losing population and gaining vacancy. NEORSD is approaching these issues with multi-benefit, multi-partner programs that provide maximum value for regional investment. This presentation focuses on Project Clean Lake – NEORSD’s 25-year, $3 billion program to address CSOs with an emphasis on optimizing the mix of cost-effective gray and green infrastructure to achieve a 98% level of CSO capture. Partners will discuss early action green infrastructure projects and NEORSD’s regional approach to stormwater management and CSO control.

  • Note that baseline CSO volume adds up to 4,664 MG on this map (this information came from the 2005 CSO Facilities Plan); should this be updated to match the previous slide that shows baseline CSO volume of 4,575 MG?
  • Note that baseline CSO volume adds up to 4,664 MG on this map (this information came from the 2005 CSO Facilities Plan); should this be updated to match the previous slide that shows baseline CSO volume of 4,575 MG?
  • Priority Catchments: Total area (12,168 acres) Remaining CSO volume (271 MG)   Additional Catchments: Total area (25,476 acres) Remaining CSO volume (56 MG) *no values for CSO 001 and 231 
  • Within Cuyahoga County, there are approximately 42,300 distressed properties, covering 27,552 acres (43 square miles). Cuyahoga County is approximately 294,000 acres (459 square miles). Within Cleveland, there are over 23,000 distressed parcels, covering 3,581 acres. The City of Cleveland is approximately 49,600 acres (77.6 square miles).

  • Map of the projects. In the selection process we attempted to spread the granted projects throughout the City. You notice some areas have not projects – these are non-nsp areas. Also, you see clusters- this is where there is the most vacant land.
