Design teams from around the country are invited to embrace the challenge of designing next generation Green Stormwater Infrastructure by joining the Infill Philadelphia: Soak it Up! Design Competition. The Philadelphia Water Department, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Community Design Collaborative invite architects, landscape architects, engineers, and other professionals to share their plans and ideas for managing our nation’s stormwater in creative, environmentally friendly ways.


Teams will be able to design systems for managing stormwater in three different urban areas: Industrial, Neighborhood and Commercial districts. Nine finalists will be selected to present their designs in Philadelphia on March 7th, 2013 at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University. One design from each of the three competition sites will be awarded a cash prize of $10,000. Registration closes November 30th, and submissions will be collected through January 22th, 2013.
