SABAK, WILSON & LINGO, Inc. has acquired a large resume of green infrastructure projects over the last 5 years, including Cardinal Towne, Spalding University and Shakes Run. This makes us particularly prepared to address a variety of stormwater management issues as Green infrastructure Best Management Practices (BMPs) are becoming an industry standard.

Spotlight Project: MSD – CSO 190

CSO 190 is an MSD Green Infrastructure project for a 145-acre urban watershed in the Portland neighborhood. The purpose of the project is to capture and infiltrate approximately 250,000 cubic feet of stormwater before it enters the combined sewer system. The 3-phased project is required by MSD’s consent decree with the EPA and is targeted to be complete by December, 2017. SABAK, WILSON & LINGO, Inc. is the prime consultant leading a team of land surveyors, geotechnical engineers, and historic and cultural resources consultants. Project deliverables include detailed plans, maps, and specifications for a menu of green management practices that meet the project requirements. At completion, the number of combined sewer overflows annually will be reduced from 55 to 8.

A secondary component to the project will also be community enhancement designed to provide green spaces and plantings to help off-set the visual and runoff impact from impervious surfaces. In addition, the firm will also coordinate with neighborhood and business interests to promote MSD’s voluntary downspout disconnection and stipend capital recovery programs.
