West Basin Project Survey

Welcome! The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) and our partners are seeking community feedback on the West Basin flood management project. The results of this survey will help the design team develop initial design concepts for the West Basin and 35th Street improvements. The survey takes about five minutes and will be open through September 30th, 2021. Please share this survey link with friends, family, coworkers, or others in your neighborhood who might be interested in this project.

Responses are anonymous. Results of this survey will be available on MMSD’s website once the survey closes and will be presented at future project meetings.
