Infrastructure improvements don't always happen underground. Sometimes they are on the surface and create a beautiful community amenity. KC Water's Central Industrial District/West Bottoms Green Infrastructure project is a perfect example.
The Kansas City Industrial Council selected KC Water to receive its Innovation Award for the Central Industrial District (CID)/West Bottoms Green Infrastructure project. This work, located in three areas in the West Bottoms, is a project built as part of the Smart Sewer program and is designed to keep stormwater out of the combined sewer system.
