Thursday Night! Soak It Up, Party Down!

An exciting partnership between the Philadelphia Water Department, US Environmental Protection Agency and Community Design Collaborative has led to Infill Philadelphia: Soak it Up!, a design initiative that explores how green stormwater infrastructure plays an important role in revitalizing urban neighborhoods and in improving the health of the City's waterways. Infill Philadelphia: Soak It Up! is comprised of exhibitions, workshops, talks and design charrettes, culminating with a national design competition to celebrate and promote the next generation of innovative designs and investments in green stormwater infrastructure in Philadelphia.

You are invited to join us for the Soak It Up! Launch Party on Thursday, October 4, from 6-8 p.m. at the Philadelphia Center for Architecture, 1218 Arch Street. The event takes place in a gallery setting with an exhibition that displays over 40 green projects to inspire Soak It Up competition participants and stakeholders to think about designs that can help our neighborhoods and improve the health of our waterways.

Cocktails will be served at the party, remarks will be made by EPA Regional Administrator Shawn Garvin and Philadelphia Water Commissioner Howard Neukrug, the exhibit will be on display, and it will be lots of fun! Please join us. RSVP for the Launch Party and please visit the Infill Philadelphia: Soak It Up! site for more information. The exhibition will remain  on display now through Friday, October 19.
