Kingsley Water Resource Restoration

Kingsley, IA | Water

Overview

ISG led the design of a Water Resource Restoration Sponsored Project that integrated permeable pavers to solve the City of Kingsley’s stormwater issues.


Opportunity

With inadequate stormwater management in place, the City of Kingsley needed to secure funding to implement permeable pavers in an alley with significant runoff.

Solution

ISG led the funding, planning, and design of a permeable paver system for the City of Kingsley. The system was placed in an alley that receives substantial runoff during rainfall and allows rainwater to soak through the gaps between the pavers into a rock chamber below, allowing sediment and pollutants to filter out of the water, while also reducing the peak stormwater runoff rate. ISG assisted the City in securing funding from the Iowa State Revolving Fund (SRF) and Water Resource Restoration Sponsored Projects program. These sponsored projects are funded by an interest rate reduction on an existing cleanwater SRF loan to fund the installation of stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs). With this program, the money procured comes at no cost to the City, as it only pays for a project that exceeds the funding available. In this case, the City contributed to the project to ensure it was able to get the full alley completed.
