    Basin Buddy Book

    The Environmental Services Department of the City of Grand Rapids will be participating in the 2014 Home and Garden Show again this year! The event takes place March 6 - 9, 2014 at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We will be showcasing City activities and projects that improve water quality of one of our greatest area assets - The Grand River! We will be focusing on:

    - Minimization of Combined Sewer Overflows through seperation of storm and sanitary sewers and elimination of overflow points.

    - Adopt a catch basin program

    - The Environmental Services Departments greatest assets - the men and women that work here!

    ​"I had 5 inches of water in the street last night. I dug a cave into the snow bank until I found the catch basin and could clear it. It only took about 15 minutes to locate and then clear the basin. Within 30 minutes of clearing the basin the water level in the street dropped from about 5 inches to less than 1".
