Martinsburg Veterans Affairs Medical Center

Martinsburg Veterans Affairs Medical Center

Project Description

The Martinsburg VAMC has been proactive in addressing stormwater management while enhancing aesthetics and therapeutic options for its patients. Among the great projects on its campus are a stormwater retention basin surrounded by walking trails, benches and a wheelchair accessible observation deck; a carwash station that uses stormwater collected from the roof of the adjacent warehouse; and over 1.3 acres of permeable pavement parking lots. However, the jurors felt the most impressive effort at this sustainable facility was the establishment of a culture that promoted staff engagement in stormwater management through training, community outreach and participation in environmental management review and planning.
