The Greening the Gray in Basin 045 project consists of a rooftop downspout disconnection of an existing building along Crescent Ave. and connecting it to an adjacent separated storm sewer. This prevents stormwater runoff from the roof of this building from entering into the combined sewer system. This project is one of several greening of gray projects that Onondaga County is completing under the Save the Rain program.
The rooftop of the building that is being disconnected has an area of approximately 4,000 sq. ft., which equates to an annual stormwater capture and runoff reduction of 69,000 gallons per year.
