Stormwater Pioneers | Philadelphia Water Department

Gina Rucci, co-owner of Popi's, received over $90,000 in grant money from Philadelphia Water to install two rain gardens that beautify the neighborhood and protect the environment by keeping polluted runoff out of city sewers.
As a result, she will save money on her water bill and Philadelphia will have a cleaner river - it's a win-win for Popi's and the City - and something that many small businesses can replicate.

Gina Rucci, the co-owner of Popi's Italian Restaurant, 3120 S. 20th St., is being lauded as a Stormwater Pioneer by the Philadelphia Water department.
Lakash Constructors, Wilkinson & Associates and Ruppert Landscape will be celebrated as well, for their work on the site of Popi's parking lot. The Stormwater Pioneers program, which began in 2014, recognizes excellence in stormwater management on private properties. Conceding private property for the purposes of preserving the health and cleanliness of Philadelphia's rivers and streams, Rucci is being awarded with a Stormwater Pioneers Award Ceremony 10:30 a.m. Nov. 17 at the site (rain or shine). "Gina Rucci made a smart business move that we're excited to celebrate. Rucci used over $94,000 from Philadelphia Water to improve her property and neighborhood, all while lowering her stormwater bill by 60 percent. That means the $5,000 investment she contributed will pay for itself in less than two years. And there's a big picture bonus in this story, too: by turning her asphalt parking lot into a green stormwater tool, Rucci is doing her part to make Philadelphia's rivers healthier for all of us and for future generations. That's why Popi's Restaurant is being honored as the 2015 Philadelphia Water Stormwater Pioneer. "Her boyfriend at Lakash deserved the award not Ms. Rucci. Are you kidding me????"
