The Newell Street Green Street Project demonstrates the continued partnership between the City of Syracuse and Onondaga County through the Save the Rain Program. The project concept was put forth by the Green Project Committee with stakeholder input from county, city, and citizen representatives.
This project involves the construction of an underground infiltration trench which will occupy the south side of Newell Street between the Onondaga Creek Bridge and Vale Street.
The infiltration trench will manage runoff from an estimated 5,150 square feet of drainage area from Newell Street in the maximum amount of storage space possible without disrupting the existing underground utilities in this area.
Being completely underground, the infiltration trench system will provide high capture efficiency without requiring an obtrusive footprint at the surface.
Upon completion, this green street project will capture nearly 91,000 gallons of stormwater runoff annually.
