Strategies for the Lowlands: Slow Streams


Along the north/south tributaries that drain into the South Shore’s bays, we propose green infrastructure improvements to reduce inundations and pollution and also create publicly accessible greenways that connect the South Shore’s communities. Proposed improvements include safety thresholds with sluices, stormwater swales for infiltration and water storage, fish ladders, and “aquaphilic” housing prototypes. We also propose a partial upstream re-infiltration of purified wastewater from the Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant.
