The 2,000 Gallon Project transformed commercial dumpsters into an impactful statement about stormwater management, green infrastructure, and the effects of CSO. The project activated a vacant site and neighboring streets into a cohesive and engaging experience for residents and visitors to promote environmental stewardship in Gowanus, Brooklyn.
Context Approach Outcomes

Project Context:

Since the canal was listed as a federal Superfund Site in 2010, $500 million has been designated to clean the canal after decades of industrial and sewer contamination. But these projects can’t solve the problem completely; people also need to contribute to the solution. This initiative sought to reinforce ongoing initiatives by showing how stormwater management plays a critical role in the Gowanus cleanup.
