The Philadelphia Water Department has reached out to East Point Breeze Neighbors to let us know that they are in the planning stages for a few different projects in our neighborhood. These projects will include the installation of green stormwater infrastructure projects (such as stormwater street trees and planters). Construction is still a few years away, but stay tuned for updates at future community meetings. For more information about the importance of stormwater management, visit www.phillywatersheds.org.
See below for an example of what the tree trenches might look like.
