Location: Wilmington, DE
Meliora Environmental Design, with the Delaware Center for Horticulture, has designed an urban retrofit of the existing Acme Parking lot in Wilmington. The project was funded through the Urban Heat Island Grant from the US Forest Service. The design includes several bioretention systems and tree trenches with subsurface infiltration beds to capture roof and parking lot runoff, as well as provide site greening. The full site Concept Plan maximizes stormwater mitigation benefits at the site, and provides a more comprehensive demonstration of urban stormwater techniques.
