Scott Wilkerson, Director of Stormwater Management at UMaine, paid a visit to LongGreenHouse to assess the flow of stormwater from University parking lots and athletic fields through the site. As a result of meetings with permaculture students and professors, Scott suggested a reclamation plan in which the University would partner with students to design and implement a root zone area and catchment pond, to help filter pollutants from the water and daylight the buried flow through its emerging streamhead which flow directly into the Stillwater river.

This proposed project could be a model for other runoff situations across campus, a model for geening the landscape and cleaningthe water before it flows into the Penobscot watershed.
