Southeast Atlanta Green Infrastructure Initiative Phase 1 - Peoplestown, Mechanicsville and Summerhill
Under the Southeast Atlanta Green Infrastructure Initiative, the Department has developed short-term and long-term projects to address flooding issues within the Custer Avenue CSO basin. DWM has taken a holistic approach to flood mitigation with projects that are not solely focused on one community. Phase 1 of the project will focus on the Peoplestown, Mechanicsville and Summerhill neighborhoods.
After a review of the infrastructure in the southeast Atlanta, the Department identified several short-term opportunities for construction projects to provide immediate relief to residents. These projects include construction of bioswales and stormwater retention ponds and pervious pavement work. Efforts for the long-term plan will be determined as the Department's short-term plan is being implemented.
Since August 2012, DWM has completed six projects to help reduce flooding throughout southeast Atlanta.
Currently, the Department of Watershed Management is working at the locations listed below.
