Pave Paradise? No way! Mayor Barrett announced the City's new Green Infrastructure Plan today that requires green infrastructure on all large development projects plus new funding to green up parking lots and MPS schoolyards. This new green parking lot at Brothers Business Interiors demonstrates green infrastructure is good for the environment and good for business.

The east side of Wisconsin, including Milwaukee, may get hammered again with rain again tonight. #givethelakeabreak and please restrict non-essential uses of water (like laundry) tonight and tomorrow to help the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District - MMSD catch up on processing and cleaning all this rain water.
Why is this important? Many parts of SE WI have “combined sewer”, where rainfall enters the sewer system and has to be processed. Heavy rains like recent ones, especially north of MKE, can overwhelm the sewer system, reaulting in overflows. Thanks WISN 12 NEWS for the radar video.
And it collects 70,000 gallons of rain water on-site during a ⛈, helping keep #LakeMichigan and our rivers clean.ECO’s #fondypark18
Happy New Years from ECO!!!!

As a 2017 expansion of ECO's #northave17 Greenscaping project, we are building an expansive ecopark next to Fondy Market.
Fly over #fondypark17 to see our progress as of today: stormwater management Phase 1 features are all in, internal trees planted, hardscape path next week followed by interior planting of 1,500 perennials and seeding, sodding, a LOT of watering, then tables, stage and signage.

White cap waves....on the Milwaukee River??? With the strong winds today, it appears the surface water is heading upstream, not downstream.
Maybe we can find out how this happens talking to the experts at ECO's #waterweekmke17 events March 20-24!
This Monday, Feb 27, marks the 5 year anniversary of ECO's wind turbine installation!
It is located on the south side of the Hoan Bridge and powers the Port of Milwaukee administration building. The above average wind speeds near the lake provide a consistent, free energy source.
5 years of clean, very reliable power and a symbol of Mayor Barrett's commitment to renewable energy, sustainability and fighting climate threats.

Our Energizer Bunny.. it just keeps going & going...Many folks are unaware that ECO built the wind turbine you see on the south side of the Hoan Bridge. It started operation in 2012 and there have been very, very few days when it's not spinning - day or night. It powers the City's Port Administration Building.
