Managing water where it falls is something you can do to help protect our rivers and Lake Michigan. We have an aggressive goal to create enough green infrastructure to capture 740 million gallons of water every time it rains.
Cleaning water is very energy intensive. That's one reason why MMSD's goal is to produce our own and be energy self-sufficient by the year 2035.
MMSD knows it’s important to continue to minimize energy use and switch to domestic, secure forms of energy. Doing so can save money, reduce price volatility, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and provide energy security. In the context of supply and demand, energy conservation (i.e.,demand) and renewable energy (i.e., supply) are things over which we have some control.

In southeastern Wisconsin, two of the most intense rainfall events in the past three decades occurred in 2010 and 2008, causing millions of dollars in flood damage. Predicting the next big storm is impossible, but we do need to be prepared. Intense storms challenge our ability to build, operate, and maintain MMSD’s robust infrastructure, so we’re continually planning to make sure we're as ready as possible.
We know it’s important to do our part to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. To do this, we first inventoried our GHG emissions in 2010, and are updating that work now. Our goal is to reduce our carbon footprint by 90% from baseline conditions by 2035.
