Important stormwater improvements are coming to the Elmwood neighborhood. This project is part of Philadelphia’s Green City, Clean Waters program. Please join Philadelphia Water representatives to learn more about the project and provide feedback on proposed designs. Refreshments will be served! For more information, contact Dan Schupsky at Daniel.Schupsky@phila.gov or call 267-262-2903.

Green City, Clean Waters is an innovative City of Philadelphia program created by Philadelphia Water to protect our rivers and streams using specially designed green tools that filter and store water through natural processes. These green tools, which often use plants and trees, help stormwater (rain or melting snow) soak into the ground. They are a beautiful and cost effective way to reduce pollution in our waterways. This approach will result in greener communities and cleaner rivers for everyone to enjoy. Learn more: Phillywatersheds.org
