BACK / SHORELINE RECYCLING & TRANSFER STATION - CREEK BUFFER & STORMWATER IMPROVEMENTS
During the design of the Shoreline Recycling and Transfer Station, KPG improved habitat conditions along the Thornton Creek by establishing a permanent vegetated stream buffer, removing invasive species and impervious surfaces within this area, and replanting with native species. On-site stormwater management facilities included a combined detention and treatment pond, oil/water separation, and media filters prior to discharge to the creek. A rainwater harvesting system further reduces peak storm runoff from the site into the creek.
The Thornton Creek Alliance presented KPG with a certificate of recognition.
