Applicant – City of Coeur d’Alene
The City of Coeur d’Alene proposes installing treatment to remove discharge from the City’s stormwater outfalls. The goal of this project is to install stormwater storage/filter systems and/or vegetated swales to divert stormwater from the existing outfalls in this combined 76-acre urban drainage area. An engineering study will determine the best storage and filtration method for the site.
The City requests $200,000 for this outfall project. It would reduce phosphorus by 140 lbs per year, yielding 1,400 lb/10 years (in perpetuity) for a cost-benefit ratio of $140 lb per/10 years.
