P3 Targets Storm Water Pollution

From Storm Water Solutions:

The Stormwater Authority of Chester, Pa., through its partnership with Corvias announced it will use $15 million in low interest loans from the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST) to remediate existing storm water assets and install new green infrastructure devices that will remove pollution and improve the health of local waterways, including Ridley Creek, Chester Creek and the Delaware River.

The funding will be used on storm water projects approved by the city council such as the Crozer Park Trail project and the Catch Basin Retrofit project. For the Crozer Park Trail project, the partnership will reduce existing impervious area, construct a new rain garden, and install vegetation and 90 deciduous trees along the trail. For the Catch Basin Retrofit program, the partnership will continue cleaning and inspecting drainage structures and then repair and/or retrofit identified basins requiring improvement.
