White Rock Stormwater Treatment

Project Description

Recognizing the importance of managing runoff water quality to its prided ocean beach, Urban Systems designed and implemented a Low Impact Development (LID) street as part of the reconstruction of Stayte Road. Stormwater runoff from the roadway enters a vegetated bioswale through openings cast into the barrier curb, allowing the water to be filtered and infiltrate back to the ground. Implemented as a pilot project, it has become a template for further integration in the City.
