Sustainable stormwater landscaping on the Louisville Belvedere

Verdant Design and Diane Secor have been working with MSD to develop sustainable stormwater features to the Louisville Belvedere.  Currently, the rain water from the elevator building has been redirected to a rain barrel (called a Raintainer) and out to a rain garden made up of local, native plants.  The mayor’s, MSD’s Bud Schardein, and Waterfront’s David Karem’s speeches can be found on Verdant Design’s website.

A public meeting on May 10th at 7pm at KY Center for the Arts will showcase the upcoming project phases.  The city’s website will have updates and more information on the meeting.
