Sims-Hugo Neu Stormwater Infiltration

Designer-The Gaia Institute, Bronx, NY
In collaboration with The Gaia Institute The Dawson Corporation constructed a below ground storm water catchment below a 4 acre metal recycling facility on the Bronx River. The site was regraded to pitch from the river back to the street and storm chambers were installed to catch the storm water. In addition to these structures a wetland bio-filter was also constructed. Future plans include a green wall and solar powered well pumps.
