VALPARAISO | It's a case of detention basin deja vu.
VALPARAISO | It was almost like divine intervention. Valparaiso needed to get rid of a lot of dirt, and St. Paul Church needed a lot of dirt to fill its backyard.
Valparaiso's new stormwater detention basin, currently under construction, is symbolic of the new attitude toward the environment in Northwest Indiana. Working together, environmentalists, government officials and industry can accomplish common goals.
VALPARAISO | Detention basins aren't just for temporarily storing stormwater anymore.
VALPARAISO | It's not likely to be a best-seller, except in select circles, but the city is writing the book on stormwater management.
VALPARAISO | The Indiana Department of Transportation isn't interested in Valparaiso's spare dirt, so it will cost a little more to expand the Wall Street detention basin.
VALPARAISO | A decision on who gets the contract for expanding the Wall Street detention basin will depend on what they do with the dirt.
VALPARAISO | The city is inviting Chautauqua Park residents to hear what's in store for their neighborhood before it finalizes flood relief plans. Residents also will have the opportunity to tell consultants if they missed any areas afflicted by flooding.
VALPARAISO | The Wall Street detention basin improvement is No. 4 with a big soggy bullet on the city's Top 17 stormwater projects, and the city's Utilities Board hopes to start construction in March.
