The Brewster Medical Properties (also known as Genesee Medical Center) project is located at 1200 East Genesee Street. The 3-story building is occupied by St. Joseph’s Imaging and has been providing radiology services to the community since 1976.
In need of a new parking area and stormwater management solutions, Brewster Medical Properties partnered with the Onondaga County‘s Save the Rain Program to implement green infrastructure elements to manage stormwater runoff from the property.
The project included two subsurface infiltration systems, which will capture runoff from an approximately 47,052 square foot surface. The roof runoff was also connected to the system through a retrofit to the existing roof drains. With the connection to the roof, the project was able to capture all of the impervious surfaces on the property.
Approximately 13,339 square feet of green infrastructure was installed that captures an estimated 837,700 gallons of stormwater annually.
