North Brooklyn Parks Alliance (NBK Parks) is excited to announce the kickoff of the West Street Watershed Stormwater Project, a Greenpoint Community Environmental Fund grant project presented in partnership with the Brooklyn Greenway initiative. The West Street Watershed Stormwater project will help to dramatically reduce the occurrence of combined sewer overflow events in Greenpoint through the installation of bioswales and green infrastructure. These proposed bioswales will not only capture storm water in Greenpoint before it floods our sewage system, they will also beautify the neighborhood with new native plants while reducing flooding. NBK Parks will provide maintenance and long term care for the bioswales, ensuring they benefit our community for many years to come!
