Projects & Planning at Western Michigan University
Posted Date: 3/26/2012
K&A has worked with Western Michigan University (WMU) on a number of stormwater treatment projects and plans. The Lot 23 treatment system was designed to divert and treat first-flush stormwater runoff generated from approximately 32 acres of WMU campus via a retrofit of existing infrastructure.
Construction was completed last fall on another stormwater treatment project near Stadium Drive and Howard Street in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The streambank project addresses flooding and other stormwater problems near WMU's power plant.
The TMDL planning project funded by a separate Michigan DEQ grant was completed in October 2011. The project involved an intensive study of the stormwater generated on WMU's campus and has recommended treatment practices and measures for the entire campus. See the Stormwater NeutralTM webpage for more information on the broader goal WMU is striving for.
