LID practices and “green technology” components will be constructed at the Alamo Sports Complex. A pergola will be constructed with solar panels and a rainwater harvesting system. A rain garden will be constructed surrounding a storm drain. A pervious concept trail will also be built.
This site has high visibility because of the Sports Complex traffic. The LID practice of a rain garden surrounding a storm drain has potentially large scale implementation due to the large number of storm drains where this practice could be utilized. The site is utilized as a community garden which will likely be a source for nutrients, so the BMPs ability to remove nutrients will be tested/evaluated (as budget permits).
