Improving Our Community Waterways Together

Clifton Heights Storage Basin

Clifton Heights Storage BasinClifton Heights Storage Basin

Basins are a key part of achieving safe, clean waterways

Rainwater can enter the sewer system during rain events and cause a mixture of sewage and rainwater to flow untreated into our waterways. Proposed and existing storage basins—throughout our city—are designed to retain the mixture of rainwater and sewage until the rain subsides, and then gradually release it back into the sewer system for treatment.



Clifton Heights Storage Basin

The Clifton Heights Basin will be mostly underground and covered. A small building above it will include pumps and equipment for operation. Input from the neighbors—at public meetings and online—will determine the aesthetics of the finished project. This basin will offer Beargrass Creek protection from combined sewer overflows.
