VNA (Visiting Nursing Association) Homecare is a managed long term care program that provides medical assistance for individuals who wish to remain in their homes. VNA is a strong community partner with many local healthcare agencies and organizations throughout Central New York. VNA recently partnered with Onondaga County’s Save the Rain Program through the Green Improvement Fund to implement green infrastructure solutions on their property, located at 1050 W. Genesee Street.
The VNA project included the installation of a subsurface infiltration system that works in conjunction with a drywell. Runoff from the parking lot, streets, and sidewalks is conveyed to the subsurface infiltration trench through a drywell system with various catch basin inlets. The system will collect stormwater from the site and infiltrate it into the ground, preventing it from entering the combined sewer system.
This project captures an estimated annual total of 516,000 gallons of stormwater.
