City Funds LaSalle Stormwater Project
Thanks to a Stormwater Management Incentives Program (SMIP) grant, La Salle University is beefing up 14,300 square feet of its campus to better manage stormwater in Philadelphia.
LandStudies will install multiple rain gardens to intercept stormwater and to clean, infiltrate, and reduce the volume flowing into Philadelphia’s combined sewer system. Other GSI Partners involved with the project include Peer Environmental and Brenton Landscape Architecture.
