TOPEKA, KANSAS – MANAGING STORMWATER THE NATURAL WAY
Abstract:In response to the EPA National Pollutant Discharge Elimination (NPDES) Phase I permit requirements, the City of Topeka, Kansas, is embarking on a program to develop stormwater management practices that address water quality. As part of this program, the City conducted a workshop to evaluate various innovative best management techniques to address the water quality problems in the north portion of the City, which contains combined sewers that overflow during wet weather. The recommendation from the workshop included the separation of the combined sewers, and to divert the stormwater flows to a constructed wetlands system. The wetland system would be designed as a multi-purpose facility to include a park facility with public access and educational components to increase the public's awareness of stormwater quality.
