Stormwater Lots: New Orleans, LA

Client: New Orleans Redevelopment Authority

Summary: Dana Brown & Associates has designed and implemented four vacant lots into stormwater management lots that can hold up to 80,000 gallons of water, removing runoff from the streets and detaining/retaining the water to minimize localized flooding. The lots were designed to utilize stormwater management practices to manage each drop of raintwater as close to where it falls as possible. Green design principles were also implemented as a means to enhance the landscape as green open space for the neighborhoods and to serve as educational examples for nearby schools.
