The importance of Green Infrastructure practices is growing rapidly as city engineers and developers attempt to lessen the burden of stormwater volume on our underground systems. Conventional underground piping systems in many regions cannot keep up with the increase in urban runoff, leading to combined sewer overflows, flooding and increased pollution in our natural waterways. Green Infrastructure is a cost-effective approach to addressing the negative impacts of urban runoff and provides numerous benefits to the community and environment.
Green Infrastructure installations are utilized on new and existing developments ranging from streetscape and urban revitalization projects to new educational facilities and commercial developments. J.R. Hoe offers a variety of products ideal for Green Infrastructure applications, from decorative trench drains and curb openings which direct runoff from the street to a biofiltration feature such as a rain garden or bioswale to Dual-Flow downspout boots that “disconnect” roof runoff from the underground piping system for rainwater harvesting or above ground infiltration.
J.R. Hoe regularly works with engineers and landscape architects in developing products that fit the Green Infrastructure requirements of any project. If your Green Infrastructure project requires a custom-designed product, please contact us below!
