Community Workshop: Capturing the West Side's Water Story

Event Date:
Saturday, February 13, 2021 - 8:00am to 1:00pm
Event Address:
SW corner of W Starr Pass Blvd and S Shannon Rd
Tucson, AZ 85713

Join WMG's Trevor Hare, Restoration Director, and Luis Salgado, Green Infrastructure Coordinator, on Tucson's west side to install a passive system (no curb cuts!) to harvest water off of a road and into a favorite community walking space. We will be upgrading the walking trail, installing rock grade control structures, planting dozens of drought-tolerant plants, and cleaning up the excavated basins and berms. This unique project plans to use street stormwater flows through the capture of the splashing of passing cars and a bit of fancy grading at the top to capture stormwater flows before the curb starts.  This will be a physically distanced, mask-on event. This event is limited to 10 people.
