City of Kiron Water System Design Improvements

Kiron, IA | Public Works

Overview

ISG designed green infrastructure to reduce the negative effects of stormwater runoff.


Opportunity

With major erosion issues during rain events, the City of Kiron needed to implement effective stormwater management systems.

Solution

The City of Kiron had major issues with substantial urban and agricultural stormwater runoff causing soil erosion, stream bank failure, and nutrient contamination of East Otter Creek. During large rain events, the gravel road leading to the City’s wastewater treatment plant was prone to wash out. ISG designed a solution utilizing Low Impact Development (LID) practices including bioswales and bioretention cells to treat, infiltrate, and reduce the stormwater’s peak flows.
