Ellis Creek Water Recycling Facility

A carpet of succulents are arranged in mass plantings over the expanse of these industrial building’s roofs.

The living roof is supported throughout the dry season by the reclaimed water produced by the municipal wastewater facility.

Net Zero stormwater discharge is achieved thru the combination of the vegetative roofs and rain garden basins on the ground.
