The facility used the authority granted under the state's Stormwater Act of 1996 to integrate innovations in the bioengineering design with cultural traditions. As a result, the facility serves as a tranquil escape in the urban environment while treating stormwater runoff. Thousands of native plants were reintroduced to the site.
