Green City Clean Waters, Philadelphia’s innovative 25-year stormwater management plan, will bring green stormwater infrastructure to neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia. What will these projects look like? How will they work? How can they benefit us beyond managing stormwater?

These are just some of the questions that the Philadelphia Water Department, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Community Design Collaborative asked through Infill Philadelphia: Soak It Up!, a special initiative to design future green tools for Philadelphia and explore their potential for revitalizing our neighborhoods.

Join us at City Hall on Tuesday, October 15 for the opening reception of an exhibition showcasing  the inventive, engaging ideas for green stormwater infrastructure that resulted from this successful partnership. The event is sold out, but you can RSVP here for the waiting list.
