The permeable pavers and rain garden will capture approximately 2,800 cubic feet of stormwater from the adjacent roadway where it can be slowly absorbed into the ground. In addition to stopping the flow of water toward the library, these BMPs will prevent nutrients and sediment commonly found in roadway runoff from flowing into Turtle Creek. This will ultimately improve water quality and reduce stormwater volumes that cause flooding in the watershed.
Overall, Turtle Creek Stormwater Management Project retrofitted 17 project sites in Allegheny and Westmoreland Counties with stormwater management practices in areas that lack these practices altogether or where existing practices have proven to be inadequate. These installations now treat more than 493,000 cubic feet of runoff from a one-inch storm on approximately 136 acres of developed land.
