The Peabody Water Quality Project will install up to 8 Filterra units on street corners to treat Stormwater runoff from road and sidewalk surfaces.
Reduce fecal coliform bacteria and other pollutants from flowing into Peabody Creek.
What is a Filterra Unit?
A Filterra unit is similar in concept to bioretention (rain gardens), but has been optimized for a small footprint with high pollutant removal. Stormwater passes through a filter media mixture contained in a landscaped concrete container.
The City has been offered a grant from the Department of Ecology of up to $162,750.
