The green infrastructure project at Hotel Skyler, located near the intersection of South Crouse Avenue and Harrison Street, comprised of the renovations of two separate areas on site to reduce and reuse stormwater runoff. The first renovation involved the conversion of an existing 9,800 square feet asphalt parking lot to a porous lot utilizing brick pavers with structural soils and subsurface infiltration.
The other project included the installation of two cisterns to capture stormwater that may be used in place of potable water for flushing of toilets in the facility. The project was designed to store or infiltrate at least one inch of rainfall, which will allow the site to capture an estimated total annual stormwater runoff of 173,000 gallons.
