Project Update: Orange County Great Park
February 3rd, 2012 by Sherwood

The Orange County Great Park, with its 1,347-acre master plan, is the focal point of the redevelopment of the 4,700-acre former Marine Corps Air Station, El Toro. Phase 1 of development includes the 28-acre South Lawn, including extensions to the Ken Smith-envisioned timeline and a first of its kind large scale overland stormwater harvesting system for reuse as irrigation. Among many of the forward thinking sustainability goals of the project, Sherwood is working is to decrease the irrigation demands of the park and reuse as much water on site as possible. The Park will be harvesting and storing all available onsite and offsite runoff in a series of design-oriented storage basins. Stormwater from these basins will then be treated and reused for irrigation, with the aim of reducing the reclaimed water use significantly. One of the project’s goals is to be a new model for water resources planning within the LA basin. Read the rest of this entry »
