Project Description

This schoolyard retrofit project — featuring rooftop disconnections, permeable pavement and a rain garden — receives an honorable mention for its outstanding use of public art in a stormwater BMP. The cloud sculpture design on the rainwater harvesting system was visually stunning while effectively drawing attention to the purpose of the project. The jurors also commend the project for its meaningful engagement with students throughout the design and implementation of the project.
