Green Infrastructure

Alphasource has embarked on an extensive storm water management project to capture rainwater from the rooftops of its buildings.

This reduces the demands of city storm water systems and recycles clean rainwater for other uses.

Why?  “Green Infrastructure” is a cost-effective, resilient approach to managing wet weather impacts that provide many community benefits.


Storm water runoff is a major cause of water pollution in urban areas. When rain falls on our roofs, streets, and parking lots in cities and their suburbs, the water cannot soak into the ground as it should.


    Storm water runoff carries trash, bacteria, heavy metal and other pollutants from the urban landscape. Higher flows resulting from heavy rains also cause erosion and flooding in urban streams, damaging habitat, property and infrastructure.


Naturally recharging groundwater supplies and supporting streams and aquatic life during periods of little rainfall are other environmental benefits that can be reaped by effectively controlling storm water runoff.


Alphasource is doing its part to help protect our environment for our generation and future generations.
