It takes vision and foresight to sustainably
manage water where it falls. Green luminaries
ultimately help protect our rivers and Lake
Michigan by adapting practices that harvest
rainfall for other uses or mimic nature by
draining it into the ground to reduce water
pollution. Green luminaries like this project
are led by true champions who recognize not
only the need to manage stormwater, but
also the need to innovate and grow, to create
lasting good works, and to connect people
and prosperity to the environment.
The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) applauds the Milwaukee County Parks
Department’s cisterns, green roof, and permeable pavement/stormwater recycling projects at the
Mitchell Park Conservancy Domes for capturing stormwater where it falls, reusing it where possible,
and reducing polluted stormwater runoff.
inspiring leaders in sustainability.
