Kansas City Uses Collaboration to Reduce Sewer Overflow


Kansas City Water Services is leading the city’s sustainable initiative for the Overflow Control Program and the long-term plan for the utility.  Collaboration among various city departments has enabled the strategic allocation of city resources that will further enhance the community investment in green infrastructure solutions. In addition to pooling municipal resources to enhance the city’s existing green infrastructure investment, the city has worked to assist community leaders to request public funding for enhancements to neighborhood curbs and sidewalks which will provide safe connections for pedestrians and bicyclists in the community. The Overflow Control Program represents the largest infrastructure investment in the history of Kansas City.  Kansas City has allocated more than $68 million for the installation of green infrastructure projects.  This year, Kansas City is also scheduled to release an innovative technology initiative that will enable the city to capitalize on the investment made as part of the Overflow Control Program. This investment is already proving to be successful, both in the reduction of combined sewer overflows and in strengthening the local community.

This allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. That means that if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment, you can deduct the FULL PURCHASE PRICE from your gross income. It’s an incentive created by the U.S. government to encourage businesses to buy equipment and invest in themselves. Still reading this??
