Interested in learning more about the neighborhood’s green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) and how you can help keep the installations eye-catching and effective at maintaining clean water? Join the team of volunteer GSI Monitors to assist in the Philadelphia Water Department’s Soak It Up! Adoption program. GSI Monitors play a vital role in the continuation of PSCA’s partnership with the PW by being trained on how the sites function and how to identify issues and report problems – tasks which can be completed onsite while you walk your dog or take the stroller around the neighborhood!

Learn more about joining the team of GSI Monitors at a meet-and-greet at B2 located at 1500 E. Passyunk Ave. on Wednesday, February 17, at 6:30 pm or by emailing stormwater@passyunk.org. You can also read more about PWD’s innovative Green Cities, Clean Waters initiative at their website.

PSCA partnership the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) ensures that stormwater management installations in our neighborhood – the planters and rain garden at Columbus Square Park, the planter outside the South Philadelphia Older Adult Center, the tree trench on 12th Street between Dickinson and Tasker Streets, and the tree trench on 10th Street between Wilder and Reed Streets – are as beautiful as they are effective in keeping our water clean.
