Honor Award – HR Green, Inc., Chesterfield

Firm Name: HR Green, Inc., Chesterfield

Project: Ladue City-wide Stormwater Management Program

Client: City of Ladue

Many neighborhoods in Ladue were originally platted and developed between 1930 and 1960 with little or no stormwater management infrastructure. Rarely did any of these systems meet today’s standards. Residents voted to approve a stormwater sales tax to fund drainage improvements, and called upon the City to address these issues throughout the community. The City of Ladue selected HR Green, Inc. to lead a comprehensive analysis of stormwater management needs in the community and the Stormwater Master Plan process.  In this role, HR Green reached out to residents in public meetings and individually, to characterize drainage issues and begin building public support for possible solutions. The result was a Stormwater Master Plan identifying more than $113 million in projects with potential for net positive benefit to the community.
