KC One

Kansas City, Missouri

Vireo's ecologists and planners helped the city formulate one cohesive management strategy for 35 watershed districts, clarifying responsibilities, establishing priorities and offering a work plan for stormwater and combined sewer overflow management throughout the city. Vireo conducted a stream asset inventory, created stream buffer recommendations, developed a stream setback ordinance, and evaluated both natural resources information and GIS analyses to identify and prioritize opportunities to integrate green infrastructure into the study.
