Project Description

Green Infrastructure transformed a low-lying intersection with a large concrete island and dangerous merge lane into a model for stormwater management, improved traffic safety, and increased commercial activity. Located next to the Lancaster Brewing Company, the intersection is now home to native shrubs, perennials, and new tree species surrounding an outdoor cafe constructed of permeable pavers, featuring a public art amenity that acts as a cistern to capture stormwater from the brewery’s roof for watering planters are used by brewery owners to grow their own produce.

This category recognizes the best application of green infrastructure (GI) practices that are built in highly urban areas to reduce flooding and pollutant delivery (more than 75% site impervious cover). Some examples include: green streets, walls, roofs or parking lots, rainwater harvesting systems, urban forestry practices, and permeable hardscapes.
