Water Quality Basin at The New York Botanical Garden
Environmental Protection Commissioner Carter Strickland and New York Botanical Garden Chief Executive Officer Gregory Long today announced the completion of the first Bluebelt stormwater detention wetland in the Bronx.

The project was funded by DEP and cost approximately $500,000.
