Cincinnati State, Hamilton County - Best Management Practices

Cincinnati State, Hamilton County - Best Management PracticesOne of the recent goals for the Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) of Greater Cincinnati and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) is to minimize storm-water discharge to combined sewer pipes. As part of this goal, various pilot projects are being undertaken to determine the effectiveness and viability of implementing storm-water best management practices (BMPs). One of these projects is at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, in Cincinnati, Ohio, where surface runoff will be captured by means of storm-water BMPs instead of being routed to combined sewers.

The practices that the USGS will be monitoring include an infiltration trench, a flow spreader, and a series of rain gardens.
