Curious about rain gardens and the other green tools being used to keep our water clean? 

We have two excited opportunities to learn more about the green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) being used right in our own backyard!

East Passyunk Green Stormwater Infrastructure Tour and Happy Hour – Date TBD!

Join PSCA and the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) for a guided tour of the six green infrastructure sites located within East Passyunk to learn more about how the green tools improve our water quality in conjunction with PWD’s innovative Green Cities, Clean Waters initiative. After the tour, continue the conversation over a drink at Garage for a GSI Happy Hour. 

Date and location are TBD. Keep an eye out for more details!

Keep Our Green Tools Beautiful by Becoming a PSCA GSI Volunteer!

Help the PWD keep the neighborhood GSI sites beautiful and effective by joining our group of PSCA volunteers!

As PSCA continues its partnership with the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) by working with neighborhood volunteers, we are looking to expand our group trained to identify and report on problems with green stormwater installations.

Reporting is an easy process done through a short, mobile survey completed onsite in a matter of minutes while you walk your dog or take the stroller around the neighborhood!

The six sites are easily accessible and located across East Passyunk, with planters and a rain garden at Columbus Square Park, a planter outside the South Philadelphia Older Adult Center, a tree trench on 12th Street between Dickinson and Tasker Streets, and a tree trench on 10th Street between Wilder and Reed Streets.

Learn more about volunteering by emailing stormwater@passyunk.org.
