Following up Friday’s ribbon cutting was a water-pouring toast on Tuesday, July 22nd at the Southwest Water Pollution Control Plant. Six different types of permeable pavers were installed in the plant’s employee parking lot and will be monitored and tested to determine their roles for future projects around the city, including porous asphalt, several forms of pervious concrete and permeable paver products.  Joining the toast were Mayor Michael Nutter, Water Commissioner Howard Neukrug, U.S. EPA’s Regional Director, Jon Capacasa, Councilman Mark Squilla and Councilman David Oh.

 

 

“Other than your bills, water is actually free anywhere so three cheers for the water department!” remarked Mayor Nutter.
