Queen Lane And Germantown Ave.

This video by GreenTreks Network shows how the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) is using a variety of innovations to protect waterways from polluted rainwater. The department is every bit as focused on meeting community needs as they are on keeping stormwater out of rivers and streams. When residents of the Queen Lane section of the city expressed concern about speeding cars during public meetings, the PWD team designed a stormwater management system to control runoff -- and cars.

Koontz park

This video by GreenTreks Network shows how a township acquired an abandoned landscaping property and took the opportunity to benefit the local community in multiple ways. The result was Koontz Park, a beautiful recreational area that offers lessons in landscaping, native species, and managing runoff from storms. The holistic vision became a reality because many partners contributed to the effort by sharing their expertise, personal passions, and willingness to get dirty and sweat.
