Browne recently launched some exciting online programming for Louisville MSD to help highlight some of the great work they are doing in their community. The online Earth Day workshops for 2nd through 5th graders highlight the massive waterway protection tunnel MSD is building under the city of Louisville. The 4-mile-long tunnel runs from 12th and Rowan Street to Lexington and Grinstead and when completed will be 18 stories underground. The tunnel will help prevent 430 million gallons of sewage and rainwater from entering local rivers and streams each year during periods of heavy rain. Once the heavy rain event has ended, the combined wastewater and rainwater will be pumped to the Morris Forman Treatment Center where it can be properly treated before being released in the local rivers and streams.

The 4 online programs:

Louisville MSD’s Massive Tunnel Project on April 5th

Meet Our Tunnel Boring Machine on April 12th

The Waterway Protection Tunnel and the Fossils of Kentucky on April 19th

Meet Our Amazing River Fish on April 26th

These programs were designed to share how the tunnel will help keep local waterways safe and clean and to offer elementary school children the chance to learn about ecology, engineering, history, and the giant tunnel boring machine that was used to excavate the tunnel. Hope you can join us on Monday April 26th for the final program: Meet Our Amazing River Fish! If you’d like some help getting the community excited about your next major project, give us a call at (513) 931-0900. We’d love to chat with you.

Cool fish that live in our local rivers!
