October 27th: Learn about a new green stormwater infrastructure project planned for Kingsessing!

Join the Philadelphia Water Department for an on-site gathering to provide input on this upcoming project.

The proposed Cobbs Crossing Rain Garden in Kingsessing is part of Philadelphia’s Green City, Clean Waters plan, which is reducing combined sewer overflow pollution in our waterways through the installation of neighborhood-based green stormwater infrastructure (GSI), such as rain gardens and tree trenches. 

Together, we’re protecting local creeks and rivers while making our streets and parks greener, healthier places to live.
