Project Description: The West Newell Street Green Street Project demonstrates the continued partnership between Onondaga County and the City of Syracuse 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 constructed an underground infiltration trench along the north side of West Newell Street between the Onondaga Creek Bridge and Vale Street.
The infiltration trench manages stormwater runoff from an estimated 5,182 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 provides high capture efficiency without requiring an obtrusive footprint at the surface.
This project is substantially complete and will capture nearly 92,000 gallons of stormwater runoff annually.
