Ohio EPA awarded the City of Pepper Pike an $84,354 SWIF grant to install 4,113 square feet of pervious pavers, 315 square feet of bioretention cell, and 450 square feet of vegetated infiltration swale at City Hall.  During the summer of 2013, an existing degraded asphalt parking lot was redone with 9,000 square feet of resurfaced asphalt draining to 4,113 square feet of pervious pavers. The vegetated swale near the pavers is used to stockpile snow in the winter. As the snow melts, it will be initially treated by the vegetated swale and further treated by a bioretention cell. The bioretention cell is planted with turf grass, demonstrating a low maintenance option for bioretention.
