At Ferguson Waterworks, we take a customized approach to green infrastructure solutions.  We help customers attain their goals for improved water quality, protection or rehabilitation of their downstream natural resources, and meeting regulatory requirements for stormwater by finding the right combination of technologies from our offering of green infrastructure products, including: 

Subsurface water storage allows for smooth infiltration or controlled release of stormwater into native soil to reduce flooding.

Mechanical filters and screens provide superior protection from debris in surface infrastructure and subsurface systems.

Vegetated and media-based treatments cut down on pollutants entering the water table and feature smaller footprints that fit easily into spaces too small for traditional rain gardens or bioretention systems.

Media and biofiltration

By conveying water instead of repelling or shielding water, these alternative surfaces allow for shallow depth infiltration into native soils and reduction in catch basins, drains and piping.

Our focus is to help customers complete a successful green infrastructure project that not only looks good on day one but is resilient into the future with minimum maintenance. 

Green Infrastructure Solutions

Take the Urban Green

Infrastructure Challenge

Ferguson Waterworks is committed to helping municipalities and water authorities create a greener, more sustainable future. We're working to address a growing demand for low impact development and green stormwater and erosion control solutions by expanding our services and product offerings to reflect the needs of our communities. We have developed a suite of high performance, versatile, space efficient, cost appropriate and low maintenance solutions in the urban green stormwater infrastructure and low impact development space. In order to make these products more accessible, we're asking customers in New York and across New England to take the Green Infrastructure Challenge.

Given the varied and complex nature of municipal waterworks problems, clarity and attention to detail in the following areas will strengthen your application.
