A regional government agency and long time e-Builder customer, the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) provides water reclamation and flood management services to 1.1 million residents across 28 communities in and around the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
MMSD is a national leader in green infrastructure (GI), flood management, and wastewater treatment. In 2010, MMSD executive director Kevin Shafer unveiled an impressive goal: to use GI to capture the first half inch of rainfall across the service area—equal to about 740 million gallons of stormwater with every rain event—by the year 2035. This strategy to manage water where it falls reduces flood and system backup risks and helps to mitigate climate change impacts.
