The Emerald Corridor

What is the Emerald Corridor?

The City of Youngstown is currently under federal consent decree that mandates that it takes action to mitigate the flow of stormwater into the area’s natural waterways via the Combined Sewer System. Every year over 800 million gallons of polluted stormwater runoff overflows into Mill Creek and Mahoning River causing harm to wildlife habitats and the ecosystem. Incorporating GI in the project will help to reduce the amount of runoff.
