Environmental Infrastructure Building

Data Driven Detroit (D3)   (Detroit)

D3, with funding from the Erb Family Foundation, undertook to collect, map, and improve community access to, and understanding of, environmental data. D3 is collaborating with several local environmental community organization to collect and manage data. D3 is collaborating with the Sierra Club’s Great Lakes Chapter to gather green water infrastructure data, with the goal of showing the effects of rain barrels, rain cisterns, and bio swales to reduce outflow pollution into Michigan’s lakes and rivers. D3 collaborated with Recycle Here! to collect data on recycling drop-off locations within the city. D3 created maps showing brownfields and leaking underground storage tanks for The Kellogg Foundation. D3 worked with Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice to focus data collections where it would most benefit the city.
