The Stormwater Authority of Chester
Corvias is joined by the US Environmental Protection Agency, PENNVEST, and the Chester Water Authority, three significant supporters of this new CBP3—one of only a few that exist nationally. The goal of the CBP3 is to create a transparent framework that aligns the needs of public, private and community stakeholders and to form a long-term relationship that stimulates the economy through utilization of local disadvantaged business while achieving regulatory goals. The vision for this CBP3 program is to plan, implement, and manage an integrated Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) urban retrofit program within the City of Chester, including a long-term 30 year operation and maintenance program. The effort will support greater greening efforts in the region, generating hundreds of jobs and significant small business growth for this historically impoverished, overly burdened, urbanized community in the Delaware River watershed.
