Sunset Park Green Infrastructure Basin

Middletown, Ohio

The Bulls Run to Sunset Park Green Infrastructure Basin project is part of the long-term control plan for the City of Middletown’s consent decree to control combined sewer overflows by providing up to nearly a million gallons of storage. Stormwater is diverted from the Bulls Run watershed to the basin where it is held, treated and then slowly released back into the combined sewer. Added benefits include beautification of Sunset Park, educational opportunities, revitalization of a community asset, and more. This green infrastructure solution created a much more usable and aesthetically pleasing space for the community as well as a valuable habitat for birds, insects, and other creatures.
