3rd District Green Infrastructure - East High School 

Kansas City, Missouri 

For nearly a decade, Kansas City’s Water Services Department (WSD) has been looking to Vireo for innovative approaches to green infrastructure (GI). The most recent project combines the need for green infrastructure in the city’s urban core with the educational opportunities and job training only a place like East High School could offer. Several new stormwater features are being designed that will also provide learning and employment opportunities, including football field reconstruction, restoring a pond on site and retrofitting the east parking lot with pervious pavement and improved bioretention.
