St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church



St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church


Ifland Engineers, Inc. performed preliminary and construction design services for this unique church project on a 2.5 acre site in Aptos, CA. The project has many “green build” features, including rainwater harvesting, permeable pavement and stormwater detention and recharge. Permeable asphalt with subgrade rock reservoirs were used in parking spaces as mitigation for small storm events. On-site groundwater recharge is provided via the reservoirs while higher storm flows are filtered through the rock media and detained before being discharged to an underground cistern where water is harvested for irrigation use.

The project has been cited by the County of Santa Cruz Public Works department as a shining example of Low Impact Development BMP's the County is looking for in site design projects.
