Petition to Opt-Out of Bioswales

SEN. Tony Avella

July 18, 2016

Bioswales, planted areas in the sidewalk that collect stormwater, are part of the DEP’s new Green Infrastructure Program, which is an attempt to implement more sustainable infrastructure practices in every borough.  However, DEP fails to sufficiently inform homeowners that bioswales will be installed in front of their homes.  More so, DEP does not allow homeowners the opportunity to opt-out of the bioswale installation.

Sign this petition to let DEP know that you do not want a bioswale in front of your home.
