Edenwald Houses

C.A.C. won two NYCDEP contracts totaling $7.5 million to implement green infrastructure improvements at both Edenwald housing sites (North and South) in Bronx, NY. The goal of the project was to reduce combined sewer overflows (CSOs) to the Hutchinson River tributary area and improve water quality by constructing several green infrastructure facilities throughout both sites. This included the use of permeable pavers in courtyard areas, the addition of rain gardens and vegetated bioretention, the redirection of roof runoff to nearby facilities, and installation of porous asphalt, cast-in-place pervious concrete and precast pervious concrete to filter stormwater into the ground instead of flow into the sewer system. The elements of this project served as a method to further develop the green infrastructure component of the City’s CSO Long Term Control Plan.
