Resource Manual for Green Stormwater Management Practices for Public Parks and Recreation Facilities.
The Philadelphia Water Department (PWD). Project Manager. Coordinated activities associated with the development of a
resource manual that presents standard design details for materials and practices to be applied to overall Green
Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) system design. Significant coordination was required with the PWD, the City's Department
