Capital Region Water is working with the Summit Terrace Neighborhood to construct green infrastructure along Bailey Street. This project was designed in coordination with the neighborhood association to manage stormwater while yielding the most benefits for the neighborhood.
The project includes a rain garden at the intersection of Bailey Street and 13th Street and rain gardens in the vacant lot across from the neighborhood association’s community center that often holds community events. The vacant lot’s rain gardens and open lawn was designed with residents to create a space for the community to hold outdoor events. Below the surface is an infiltration bed that will hold and infiltrate million gallons of water every year.
Construction began in April 2018 and will be completed before fall 2018.
This project is part of Capital Region Water’s City Beautiful H2O program.
