Stormwater runoff  is an issue for residents in the Green Impact Zone and throughout the Greater Kansas City area. 

In the Green Impact Zone, residents can get help with small stormwater diversion projects — such as repairing damaged concrete walkways or other small concrete projects that help direct stormwater away from your home’s foundation — through our Community Crews program.  Only homeowners are eligible and all requests must be evaluated and approved before work begins. 

In addition to helping zone residents with repairs, the Community Crews give young people an opportunity to learn new skills and get hands-on experience in developing those skills.   For more information on the work crews or to request assistance for your home, please contact the Green Impact Zone office, 816-936-8803, to connect with your community ombudsman.
