Project Description

This site slows down and cools stormwater before it flows in Kid’s Creek and eventually the western arm of Grand Traverse Bay. This project is a part of a multi-year GSI project that is managed by the Watershed Center of Grand Traverse Bay,  with a strong focus to get Kid’s Creek off the impaired waterway list. Inhabitect has played a role in numerous pieces of the GSI puzzle that covers much of the Grand Traverse Commons and Munson Medical Center’s campus’s.
