Large capital improvement projects currently underway in support of Blueprint Columbus.
There are four pillars that make up the program and will be implemented in all Blueprint neighborhoods: lateral lining, roof water redirection, a voluntary sump pump program, and green infrastructure. These Four Pillars keep rain water out of the sanitary sewer system and protects the quality of water in our rivers and streams.
