Reducing the Impact of Stormwater on Metro Beach

The Huron Clinton Metropark Authority will use green infrastructure measures to reduce, capture and treat stormwater runoff impacting the Metropolitan Beach Metropark on Lake St. Clair. This project will eliminate approximately 11.5 acres of pavement and establish a new drainage pattern for the parking area that will filter all runoff through a system of vegetative swales and detention areas to an existing 96 acre wetland. These green infrastructure investments will improve water quality and public health at Metro Beach and restore the natural hydrology.
