The AWS Headquarters are located at the historic George Washington House (circa 1752). Years of road realignments had created poor drainage patterns throughout the site. AWS installed permeable paving, a rainwater cistern, brick and dry stream channels, and rain gardens. The project demonstrates how sustainable storm water management can be successfully incorporated within historic sites challenged with a limited budget and very restrictive site constraints.

Registration is restricted to the fall conference attendees. Directions will be provided at the conference. Transportation is by private vehicles.
