Description:
Storm water collection and treatment is quickly becoming a major concern for large urban areas such as Lincoln. In an effort to proactively address the degradation of the public waters due to excessive volumes of runoff and the pollutants they contain, the City of Lincoln has installed an innovative storm water collection and treatment system known as a Hydrodynamic Separator in the storm drain network which empties into Deadmans Run.
The City of Lincoln, in coordination with the Lower Platte South Natural Resource District (LPSNRD), selected a site near the intersection of N. Cotner Boulevard and 62nd Street to implement the storm water collection and treatment system. Currently, all runoff in this intersection is collected by a conventional curb and gutter system and is piped directly into Deadmans Run, which provides no storm water treatment. The Hydrodynamic Separator will be installed in the storm drain pipe system to capture and remove many runoff pollutants such as trash, sediments, oils, fertilizers, and other organic materials. Through the use of innovative storm water collection and treatment systems such as the Hydrodynamic Separator, we can improve water quality and keep our lakes and streams pristine.
