Volunteers Field is a city park located in the Carrick neighborhood. The location of the park makes it an effective site to manage stormwater using green stormwater infrastructure solutions.
Progress & Status
This project is the first of several stormwater improvement projects happening in Saw Mill Run as part of the larger Saw Mill Run Integrated Watershed Management Plan. Managing and capturing stormwater in the park will help to reduce sediment and improve water quality throughout Saw Mill Run.
Phase One: Rain Garden
- This engineered basin at the corner of Riota Way and Plateau Street will help to reduce stormwater runoff and sediment pollution within the watershed.
