W&W Realty Co., LLC Awarded $2.7M Grant for Green Stormwater Infrastructure from the Philadelphia Water Department
The Philadelphia Water Department has awarded a $2.7M grant to W&W Realty Co., LLC, for the installation of innovative green stormwater infrastructure at its Dependable Distribution Services, Inc. warehouse facility located at 59th Street and Upland Way in the City of Philadelphia. The grant comes through PWD’s Stormwater Management Incentives Program, or SMIP, which provides financial assistance to qualified non-residential property owners to install green stormwater infrastructure on their property as part of PWD’s Green City, Clean Waters Plan. The Dependable Distribution warehouse facility is a 35-acre site, making it one of the largest green stormwater management projects implemented in Philadelphia to date. Once complete, the new green stormwater infrastructure will manage more than 800,000 gallons of stormwater directly on site, significantly reducing the property’s burden on the City’s storm sewer system.
