BC Tackles Pollutants in Infrastructure

BROOKLYN COLLEGE — This fall Brooklyn College is leading a Hybrid Green Infrastructure project to remove pollutants, alleviate drainage issues, and allow for water storage and reuse.

The project, led by Professor and Chair of Earth and Environmental Sciences Jennifer Cherrier, acts as a “sponge” to absorb rain and break up patches of concrete in cities. The Hybrid Green Infrastructure project is slated to be installed on the west side of Ingersoll, between Ingersoll and the security house off of Bedford Avenue.
