The Indianapolis Clean Stream Team's mission is to restore area streams and engage public participation in the process. The Clean Stream Team oversees projects to prevent raw sewage overflows into Marion County waterways, eliminate failing septic systems, and improve flood control and drainage. The team includes staff from the Department of Public Works and many private sector partners.
The Indianapolis Clean Stream Team oversees the City of Indianapolis' Clean Streams-Healthy Neighborhoods program. Clean Streams-Healthy Neighborhoods is addressing the city's long-standing problems with raw sewage overflows, failing septic systems, poor neighborhood drainage and polluted stormwater runoff.
As the largest investment in clean water infrastructurein state history, the Clean Streams-Healthy Neighborhoodsprogram will bring noticeable benefits to our neighborhoods and our economy. These benefits will include a dramatic reduction in raw sewage overflow volume and frequency, 18,000 fewer septic tanks in Marion County, improved neighborhood flood control and drainage, healthier urban streams, and opportunities for new jobs and economic development.
The Clean Stream Team also works to educate the public about water quality issues and encourage the public to help improve our waterways.
