Project Summary: Paul Cuffee School retrofitted their existing site with a new playing field, parking lot, and stormwater management improvements while capping contaminated soils due to past land uses.
Project Narrative: The stormwater design includes a strategically designed bioretention system that filters runoff for water quality. Morris Beacon Design’s services included earthwork analysis to minimize soil export, as well as negotiation with the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management & the Coastal Resources Management Council to reach a consensus for site drainage design, while meeting Brownfield requirements. The project will help improve the water quality of the Woonasquatucket River.
