Review for Rooted, Madison, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Center for Resilient Cities is currently constructing the Resilience Research Center. This has been one of the most exciting projects I have had the privilege to be involved with. In regard to stormwater runoff, the Center for Resilient Cities has set the bar extremely high. This project has been designed to detain and infiltrate 100% of the storm water runoff volume generated on the 3.9 AC site and a 2.0 AC offsite area draining to the site. This level of treatment far exceeds regulatory requirements and is the most ambitious stormwater goal I have ever seen for a redevelopment project of this size. This goal was accomplished through the use of green roofs, bio-retention basins, porous pavement, infiltration basins and a 60,000 gallon underground storage tank system for irrigation. Harvesting rain water for irrigation will help to reduce demand on the City's water and storm sewer systems and will help to replenish the City's aquifer. The Center for Resilient Cities commitment to sustainability is impressive!
