The Well of Hope Church Green Infrastructure project was completed in the 2021 construction season. The project included methods of preventing stormwater runoff that were funded by the Green Improvement Fund (GIF).
Porous pavement and added green space were used in this project to manage stormwater runoff. The existing parking lot was repaved with porous pavement and the sidewalk on the southern side of the building was replaced with porous pavers. Two roof drains were also installed to capture runoff from the roof of the church and direct it toward the porous pavement. The total area draining to the porous pavement is approximately 24,454 square feet, which will result in an annual runoff capture of 470,700 gallons of stormwater. Green space was added to surround the parking lot and included new tree plantings to further manage stormwater runoff, providing a total annual runoff capture of 500,700 gallons.
