St. Camillus Church Green Infrastructure Retrofit

 

Project Location: Silver Spring, MD

Problem:  Members of St. Camillus Church in Silver Spring noticed muddy brown water flowing across the church’s driveway and parking lot during heavy rains.  Soil from nearby hillsides was being washed into storm drains and into the Northwest Branch of the Anacostia River, and ultimately into the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay.
