Location: Fall River, MA
Various streetscape projects were completed in Fall River, Massachusetts. Fourteen tree pit and stormwater management systems were installed as part of urban renewal efforts in densely populated areas in the city. Working with landscape architects and urban foresters, street trees were chosen for their ability to develop mature canopies in a highly impervious environment. Many systems incorporated interior pretreatment sumps to collect and segregate sand and debris. An interior weir wall within the structure channels and distributes incoming water from the street and top surface to provide irrigation to aid in developing and expanding the root zone beneath the sidewalk surface.
