MWRD: Intergovernmental Agreement
Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago's "Green Infrastructure Call for Projects" program that began in 2017 allows MWRD to scale up its investment in green infrastructure to reduce flooding while reducing load on the sewer system. This effort resulted with the MWRD partnering with ~40 communities and public agencies throughout Cook County to fund and build GI projects. These projects will provide up to 5 million gallons of stormwater runoff storage to over 1,400 benefiting structures with the use of rain gardens, bioswales, and permeable pavement in parking lots, alleys, and residential streets. MWRD enters into "Intergovernmental Agreements" with its partner communities and agencies to set out the scope, design, construction, and operation and maintenance of the GI projects MWRD funds.
