Please plan to join us for the September 2010 UNRI Informational Webcast, which will present “New York City Greenstreets Designed for Stormwater Capture” with Adriana Jacykewycz, Director Greenstreets, New York City Dept. of Parks & Recreation. The webcast is scheduled for Wednesday, September 29, 2010, 11:00 AM (Eastern).
The Greenstreets program of New York City’s Department of Parks & Recreation (DPR). This initative converts areas of unused roadbed into planting beds filled with trees, shrubs, and perennials. Greenstreets increase canopy cover and mitigate street flooding, in line with long-term sustainability goals. The program has received federal stimulus funding to pilot stormwater-capture technologies at 26 new Greenstreets in flood-prone neighborhoods. Sites are designed to actively redirect runoff into the planting bed for onsite storage and irrigation of plants.
