IN PRAISE OF LAND AND WATER:
Revisioning Stormwater on Federal Highways


CEED served as a sub-consultant for the design of this award winning project that provides a national model for innovations in handling stormwater along federal highways. The project uses land art strategies to demonstrate best practices in erosion control, water quality improvement, and other environmental and aesthetic aspects of highway projects, with an emphasis on the use of recycled and repurposed materials.
