Green Infrastructure Demonstration Projects
This summer, together with the Great Lakes
Research Consortium, we constructed two demonstration rain gardens in Lake
Ontario coastal communities; one in Phillips Park in the Village of Fairhaven, and one at the City Hall in Oswego. Rain gardens help reduce stormwater runoff by collecting
water from roofs, allowing it to feed plants and infiltrate into the ground.
The rain gardens not only prevent stormwater from overloading the sewer system during significant rain events, but
also allow for natural filtration of stormwater, carbon uptake and contribute to the aesthetics of the landscape. Summer intern Gary Greene, a graduate student at SUNY-ESF, is managing the construction of the rain gardens
in Oswego and Fair Haven. The gardens' construction was funded through a USDA Rural
Development grant and are nearly complete with rain barrels to be installed at the Oswego City Hall site in
the coming weeks.

August 20th TAPF Recap
to all who participated at our August 20th Technical Assistance
Partnership Forum(TAPF). During the morning session we had several local
project managers discuss local stormwater management projects happening
near Lake Ontario. At the afternoon session we heard about funding updates from
several funding agencies. Throughout the day we had great discussions and project sharing among speakers and participants. Please visit our website for follow-up materials from this event. We encourage all who attended to let us know if you have topic suggestions for the next TAPF scheduled for Mid-November. More details coming soon...
