Springbrook / Homestead Estates Green Streets

As a part of the County's effort to protect our waters, the Springbrook / Homestead Estates neighborhoods were selected for a Green Streets project to help reduce stormwater pollution that drains into our streams. Green Streets projects generally involve installing small-scale stormwater practices within the County right-of-way to capture water from roadways and sidewalks during storms.

Various public events will be held throughout the project phases for residents to learn about the project and to provide input on the design of the project. Check out the Project Schedule at the bottom of the page for more information!
