Project Description

The stormwater retrofits at Tifereth Israel Congregation in Washington, DC incorporated an impressive combination of BMPs into a very small space. The retrofit includes an infiltration planter, permeable pavement, and two bioswales. Installation of these practices was combined with outreach efforts to inform engage the congregation and neighbors, seek their input on the project, and educate them about solutions to stormwater pollution.
