Partnership Aims to Upgrade Stormwater Infrastructure

The Brook Park, Ohio city council members passed an ordinance authorizing the city to participate in the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD) stormwater management program. The new program will seek to upgrade and improve the city’s 60-year-old sewer infrastructure.

The NEORSD program will oversee the regional stormwater system, which includes 420 miles of streams, pipes and culverts. Brook Park will still be responsible for smaller, local sewers.

Residents are already being charged a stormwater fee on their NEORSD sewer bills. There is currently $161,000 collected. The program ensures that money gets used for stormwater management services.
