Project Number #10SWIF-CUY-049
Est. Project Completion October, 2010
SubGrantee City of North Olmsted 5200 Dover Center Road North Olmsted, Ohio 44070 Project Contact: Kimberly Wenger, Planning Director City of North Olmsted
Amount Recommended: $196,028
Project Title: North Olmsted City Hall Parking Lot Stormwater BMPs
Project Location: North Olmsted, Cuyahoga County
Watershed: Rocky River
Project Summary: $196,028 in Surface Water Improvement Fund (SWIF) grant funding is recommended to retrofit the existing parking lot at North Olmsted City Hall with permeable pavers and bio-retention swale. The system of permeable pavers and bio-retention swale will all stormwater to permeate the ground surface rather than running directly into area storm sewers. Runoff will be filtered by the aggregate base material and bio-retention soil and stored for a duration of time allowing it to slowly infiltrate the ground or to be released (during heavy flow periods) at a controlled rate into the city’s storm sewers. The project site is currently 100% impermeable with continuous asphalt pavement and an integral concrete curb and walk median. The Schematic Design Phase for this project has been completed consisting of site assessment, conceptual layout and design and an estimate of probable costs. In addition to the permeable pavers and bio-retention swale, the project will include education and outreach activities designed to inform the public about the project and the importance of effective stormwater management. This project is being implemented consistent with the recommendations in the state endorsed Rocky River Watershed Action Plan. It is also generally consistent with findings and recommendations within the Rocky River Total Maximum Daily Load study completed by Ohio EPA and approved by US EPA. Project Deliverables: Installation of 6,700 square feet of permeable pavement in the parking areas immediately adjacent to the city of North Olmsted’s City Hall and municipal complex. Installation of 1,281 square feet of bio-filtration island(s) in the North Olmsted City Hall and municipal complex parking areas.

Conduct education and outreach activities including the development and distribution of 1 project-specific fact sheet, establishment and maintenance of a website informing the community about the status of the project, developing a project-specific display that will be installed in the vicinity of the project recognizing the partnerships who made the project possible, installation of 1 project specific sign, and a student workshop that will be conducted by the city engineer.

Environmental Results: Successful completion of this project will eliminate more than 6,700 square feet of currently impervious surface and provided enhanced filtering capacity of stormwater surface runoff thereby reducing nonpoint source pollution loadings to the Rocky River.
