Relief for an Overburdened Watershed

Radnor Township lies along the Main Line, a group of wealthy Philadelphia suburbs. For several decades, however, the township has required effective storm water management because the area is frequently plagued by huge storm events resulting in significant flooding, sometimes 2 to 3 ft deep.
