Town of Geddes – Bergner Road Porous Pavement Project

2013 Geddes - Bergner BEFORE

The Town of Geddes proposes a green project for runoff reduction, installing a three foot wide strip of porous pavement along the sides of Bergner Road and a portion of Lakeland Avenue west of Bergner.

In order to optimize runoff reduction in a cost-effective way, the remaining 20 foot width of standard asphalt pavement will be graded to direct drainage to the porous pavement strip.

The existing drainage pipe along Bergner Road will be replaced with perforated pipe in a stone trench beneath the pervious concrete gutter.

The catch basins will have grates several inches above grade, so they only take in water in large storms.
