Scranton

Project Summary

The EFC helped to enhance the City of Scranton's stormwater management program by analyzing fiscal practices and infrastructure management, as well as identifying opportunities for implementing green infrastructure practices that would help improve water quality and reduce the flow of stormwater into the already over-burdened system. The project also provided opportunity for a collaborative approach with two key partners: Lackawanna River Corridor Association (LRCA), and McLane Associates - a Scranton-based landscape architecture firm with extensive experience in environmental consulting and green infrastructure practices.
