Project Summary:

This brownfields redevelopment uses conventional and vegetated treatment systems for stormwater runoff.  There are subsurface infiltration chambers for roof runoff, lined bioretention basins to filter runoff, and rain gardens along the river walk.

Project Narrative:

The Greenway area along the Woonasquatucket River has a mix of paved and pervious surfaces and includes a linear rain garden with an infiltration feature. The filtration system is a post-construction flow-through water quality device custom designed to remove fine-grained sediment, heavy metals bound to particulate matter and residual oil by utilizing a treatment train approach. Stormwater runoff is treated to the water quality volume of the 1993 RI Stormwater Design and Installation Standards Manual. This mixed use redevelopment of an historic mill complex is LEED certified.
