SBN, via the GSI Partners, developed a monitoring grant pilot program to support data collection on the performance of private GSI projects and encourage its dissemination. Further data collection of these sites will support the GSI Partners objectives for research and innovation to advance the state-of-the-art of the GSI industry.
We congratulate the following recipients of our Monitoring Grant pilot program, and thank the property owners for opening their sites to data collection.
1. PEER Environmental, LLC, with LandStudies, will be monitoring at La Salle University.
2. Gilmore & Associates, Inc. will be monitoring at the Germantown Friends School.
3. Meliora Design, with Andropogon Associates, Ltd., will be monitoring the Perelman Plaza at Drexel University.
We extend many thanks to all of the applicants and the property owners who supported their applications; our selection committee which included support from the Philadelphia Water Department, Villanova University, and the PA Department of Environmental Protection; Stroud Water Research Center and PWD for offering their technical support and guidance to grant recipients; and the William Penn Foundation for funding this grant program.
