Blueprint Near South – Morrill/Ann Area Green Infrastructure

Columbus, Ohio

Blueprint Near South – Morrill Ann Area Project is part of the city-wide initiative to stop rainwater from entering the sanitary sewer system through redirection and infrastructure improvements. The project area consists of 230-acres and 1,300 residential homes. Sanitary Sewer Overflows and basement backups will be addressed by removing inflow and infiltration (I/I) from sanitary sewers by rehabilitating sewer pipes and laterals. Stormwater quality will be addressed by redirecting residential roof drains and installing sump pumps for residents to discharge stormwater into regional and local green infrastructure.

Phase I of the project will study the 230-acre area to determine which properties will have their roof drains redirected, and sump pumps installed. Local and regional green infrastructure will then be sited accordingly. Phase II will provide detailed construction drawings of the infrastructure established in the study area.
