Thumbs up: Building green infrastructure

Posted By on Tue, Jun 30, 2009 at 4:00 AM

The Fall Creek/College Avenue Pilot Project, an attempt to use green infrastructure to help treat and reduce storm water run-off into Fall Creek, will begin construction this August. The project will collect storm water run-off and carry it to a bioretention cell, which is similar to a rain garden and is landscaped to remove pollutants through a system of plants, soil, stone and other natural elements. The 70-foot-by-35-foot cell will include more than 1,300 native trees, bushes and plants. The project will improve the quality of storm water entering Fall Creek and reduce the amount of storm water entering the combined sewer system.
