Project Location


The Wilmington Q Green Infrastructure Corridor Project is located along Q Street from Avalon Boulevard to Bayport Avenue in the South Santa Monica Bay Watershed in the community of Wilmington.

Project Description


The Wilmington Q Green Infrastructure Corridor Project modernizes existing storm drain infrastructure and redefines the aesthetic character of Q Street. The Project reimagines Q Street as a “green street” – a stormwater management approach, which incorporates vegetation, soil, and engineered solutions like permeable pavement to slow, filter, and clean polluted stormwater runoff. 

Project Goals


The Wilmington Q Green Infrastructure Corridor Project aims to do the following:
  • Redefine and improve the aesthetics of Q Street
  • Plant street trees and 4,800 square feet of native landscaping within infiltration planters
  • Modernize the existing storm drain infrastructure
  • Capture, treat and infiltrate up to 5.6 million gallons of rainwater from a 58-acre drainage area during a normal rainy season
  • Install 13,000 square feet of permeable sidewalks, enhancing pedestrian safety
  • Reduce the area’s heat island effect

Project Funding


The total budget for the Wilmington Q Green Infrastructure Corridor Project is $4.9 million. The project is funded by the County of Los Angeles Safe Clean Water Program.
