27. Our Lady Gate of Heaven Parking Lot Bioswale

Our Lady Gate of Heaven Parking Lot Bioswale, 

2338 East 99th Street

This bioswale, constructed and analyzed by Center for Neighborhood Technology as part of a monitoring project during the summer months of 2007 and 2008, with a follow-up winter study, proved these green landscape features can and should be installed amidst large impervious surfaces (i.e., parking lots), even in regions with persistent freezing winter temperatures.
