This new green infrastructure network for the Church will capture, store, and recycle on-site stormwater to protect the foundation of the historic building from flooding, while sustaining new public gardens and walkways. The pilot project demonstrates how multiple green infrastructure installations can work together to maximize water harvesting for onsite use, and overall water retention and infiltration. The project includes pervious pavers, two rain gardens, disconnected roof leaders, and a rain harvesting system.
The project is funded through a NYCDEP Green Infrastructure Grant. The project is currently under construction, and will be complete in the Spring of 2016.
