RENEWAGE STORMWATER PROJECT AWARDED $1.2 Million by NY STATE

New York State Gov.Cuomo announced that The City of Poughkeepsie NY was awarded a prestigious Green Innovation Grant for an urban renewal stormwater project designed and planned by RENEWAGE


Academy and Liberty Street Parking Lots,
City of Poughkeepsie NY

This project engages improvements to infrastructure in the City’s densest and most deteriorated area:
1) The project seeks to improve the pavement and drainage of two key public parking lots, eliminating the impacts of flooding and poor storm water management during strong weather events,
2) Improvements to storm water management: Rerouting focused and deteriorating storm drains by dispersing storm water into ground water sources precludes the maintenance of catch basins and similar outdated storm water management technologies,

The Academy and Liberty Street Parking Lots Stormwater Management Plan engages not only the visual aesthetic of the lots but supports economic development initiatives in this key commercial city core. 

Project Objectives:

• Support the City’s goal of pollutant load reductions
• Enhancement of the neighborhood surrounding the project utilizing aesthetic “green” practices and materials to improve the quality of life in the downtown core
• Reduction of pollutants entering the Hudson River Watershed
• Mitigation of Inflow and Infiltration (I&I) into the City’s Sewers and Treatment Systems
• Utilization of trees and plantings to reduce “heat island” in accordance with US Green Building Code
• Develop a demonstration project that can be replicated elsewhere in the City, County and State to demonstrate how these green practices can be utilized

THE PROJECT IS EXPECTED TO BE CONSTRUCTED SUMMER 2019
