The RecoveryPark area will include various techniques for managing runoff, including bioswales, bioretention, and other green infrastructure. Approximately 32-acres compose the drainage area which will be managed by green infrastructure techniques. Once the urban agriculture area is developed, the runoff not infiltrated/evapotranspirated through the green infrastructure techniques, will be used for irrigation and urban agriculture. Once that is completed, it is estimated that 100% of the runoff volume (approximately 2 million gallons) from a 2-year; 24-hour event will be removed from the system.
Estimated Runoff Reduction: Approx. 1 million gallons
Site surveying and data collection is underway and further information will be uploaded as the project progresses.
