LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The city of Lafayette and Lafayette Renew now hold the "Stormwater Award."

It was given for the city's work along Brown Street in downtown Lafayette.

The project upgraded storm water run-off drainage systems. Over 5 thousand linear feet of combined sewer. The project allows for more efficient water runoff.

Permeable pavers were also placed along the road to help absorb excess water.

Lafayette Renew Director Brad Talley was one of the project's managers. He said the success came due to a several departments working together. "We have a great team with Lafayette from the mayor to the board of works, the council and all of the employees here at Renew, other departments and engineering. We just have a great team,” said Talley.

Bricks were also laid to help keep the old aesthetic of the St. Boniface neighborhood.
