Grand River Transit (GRT): Water Innovation

2015 RAIN Innovation Award Winner

Here’s the story of one of the 2015 Celebrating Community Action award recipients. Learn about all nine recipients.

Grand River Transit’s Strasburg Transit Operations Centre is nominated for a 2015 RAIN Stormwater Management Innovation Award. Their site features permeable paving around 8 trees, 2 bioswales and a 250,000L underground cistern that collects rooftop water. The harvested rainwater is then filtered and reused to wash their transit buses.

After having a RAIN Business Visit, GRT staff learned that they qualify for approximately 30% stormwater credit – or $7,000 credits per year from the City of Kitchener!
