wetlands restoration efforts break ground on Randall's Island

On Friday, May 4th, RISF and friends celebrated the groundbreaking for the Randallís Island Wetlands Project. The newest innovations in Green Design will be incorporated into the restoration of the existing freshwater and saltwater wetlands on Randallís Island. The project includes the removal of construction debris and invasive plant species from the Islandís Little Hell Gate Inlet area and the restoration of native plants and trees. Storm water will be collected and piped from adjacent sports fields and parking lots to the wetlands, where the new plants will naturally filter out pollutants before the runoff reaches the East River.

The Randall's Island Wetlands Project is made possible through the support of:

New York City Council
New York City Dept. of Environmental Protection
New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
New York State Dept. of State
