Client: City of Philadelphia through the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society
Location: Philadelphia, PA
With funding from the Philadelphia Water Department, Meliora worked with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society to engineer stormwater elements that provide greening at the Waterview Recreation Center and reduce the combined sewer overflow problem in Philadelphia. The design includes Porous Concrete Sidewalks, a Stormwater Tree Trench in coordination with new street trees, and stormwater Planter Boxes to capture roof runoff. The project provides stormwater management for both the site and the urban street area, and is a demonstration project for the Philadelphia Water Department.
