Cascade work, dig it

A perforated storm sewer pipe was installed Wednesday morning, April 25, west of Spruce Street on East Cascade Avenue. The perforated pipe allows storm water runoff to infiltrate into the underlying soils, filtering and cooling the runoff while recharging the groundwater flows that sustain the Kinnickinnic River. Work to rebuild and redesign East Cascade and upgrade utilities has entered a third week. The project should be mostly done by early November.
