Hillery T. Broadous Elementary School

Summary: With the support of the school district the site was retrofitted to capture, treat and hold all the rain falling there, reducing the flood risk and recharging the groundwater. An underground infiltration system, a swale, permeable ground cover, and in partnership with hundreds of community volunteers, trees were planted that replaced over 30 percent of the asphalt that once covered the campus.

Status: Completed
