Growing Water Toolbox

Special Recognition

Jurors described this project as "a strong approach and an innovative solution to a mundane problem." Intended to reclaim the city's storm and wastewater for reuse, the Growing Water Toolbox lays out a system of best practices for water management. The architects propose a system of "eco-boulevards" throughout the city that recycles water as the water courses through it.
