Event description

Description

Join us for NYC Soil & Water Conservation District's 7th Annual Green Infrastructure Bus Tour, this year in Philadelphia!

Like New York City, Philadelphia is on a combined sewer system. In 2011, the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) released Green City, Clean Waters, establishing a goal to “green” 10,000 acres with green infrastructure. Paired with incentivizes for private property owners and a new stormwater fee, green infrastructure installations are now abundant in Philadelphia, on both public and private properties.

This year’s tour will have five stops including a pump house with a green roof, a community environmental center, an industrial site turned park on a college campus, a stormwater capture and reuse system at a Quaker House, and a rain garden managing stormwater from a highway. See our blog post for a description of the tour sites.

Tickets are $10, and include a bagged lunch!
