NorthEast Treatment Centers
Award: TTF Non-Profit Steward
NorthEast Treatment Centers is a non-profit organization that offers a range of behavioral health and social services to adults, adolescents, children, and families in Greater Philadelphia. In 2011, the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) replaced 10,000 square feet of impervious concrete with 6 rain garden areas at their Frankford Avenue facility.
The Frankford Avenue NET Center staff and their consumers are dedicated to maintaining and reporting on this green stormwater infrastructure area as a participant in PWD’s Soak It Up! Adoption program. They view the site at least once per week, as well as after heavy rainstorm events and collect trash, clear entrance to inlets and overflow drains, and look for any structural damage. We were delighted to feature this site during our fall Managing Stormwater Project Management Tour and are pleased to recognize the Frankford Avenue NET Center for being a neighborhood teacher and leader in embracing green stormwater infrastructure.
