Lily Lake ResidenceDalton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
- The 88-acre site Lily Lake Residence is located in the rolling hills of northeast Pennsylvania on land once used for agriculture.
- Sustainable stormwater management systems are layered throughout the site to decrease flooding and reuse water for site maintenance.
- By restoring the natural grades of the land, rainwater now collects in a pond on the south side of the new estate. The pond prevents flooding in other areas of the site and reintroduces an aquatic ecosystem that had long been destroyed.
- A gutterless roof system uses gravel filtration beds, rather than gutters and storm drains, to collect and filter stormwater. The water is used on-site to refill the pond and irrigate native planting beds.
