"Green City Homes," Syracuse, New York:  Engineering Design services for green stormwater management measures consisting of porous asphalt roadways, geocell porous driveways, a stormwater wetland, and green roofs for a 34-unit green housing development in Syracuse, New York.

On April  30, 2009 NSE completed a feasibility evaluation funded by the Environmental Finance Center at Syracuse University for the use of green stormwater infrastructure as an alternative to traditional gray stormwater management practices for a proposed residential subdivision in Syracuse, New York.  The draft  feasibility evaluation identified porous asphalt for roadways and driveways, and either rainwater harvesting or green roofs to manage rooftop runoff for the project.
