Chatham University – Eden Hall Campus

6035 Ridge Road, Richland Twp, PA 15044

Stormwater at Eden Hall is managed by five rain gardens which collect and direct water flow. Gravel walkways and parking areas allow for infiltration, reducing runoff. A rainwater harvesting system gathers and cleans the water, which is then used for crop irrigation. Eisler Landscapes worked with the design team through the bidding and value engineering phases and worked on the site for two years insuring that these installations met the highest standards for sustainable sites. Eden hall will be the first campus in North America to apply for SITES certification
