Storm Water Infiltration Beds and Beach Nourishment Project

Through the integrated partnership with the Friends of Sheboygan   Parks, the Glacial Lakes Conservancy, the Sheboygan River Basin   Partnership, and local civic organizations, the City be will be able   to meet the goal of the project to minimize the effects of storm   water runoff, reduce the number of beach closings, clean up the   beaches and work with local environmental groups to educate the   public on the impacts of storm water runoff.    Project Outcomes:  - Promote infiltration of storm water instead of direct discharge   into Lake Michigan to minimize potential contamination.  - Eliminate street debris, glass, cans, pet waste, oil, from   entering and contaminating the Lake as well as the beachfront.  - Minimize the number of beach closings and advisories.  - Encourage volunteers of the community to take a proactive approach   to cleaning up the City's beaches and preserving them for the future.    (E. coli); (Escherichia coli); (beach closures); (beach closure);   (beach closings); (beach closing); (non-point source); (non-point   source pollution); (pollution); (Wisconsin); (Lake Michigan);   (nonpoint source pollution); (nonpoint source); (nonpoint)
