Johns Creek Environmental Campus

Johns Creek Environmental Campus

At its northern-most wastewater treatment plant, Fulton County turned surrounding land into an educational tool for the region and surrounding neighborhood. The campus exhibits sustainable landscape solutions through the predominant use of native plant material found in the Georgia Piedmont. Landscape architectural design includes innovative ways to demonstrate the native palette’s strength and beauty. Site design also includes natural filtration, Bio-Swales, of stormwater runoff located at visitor parking and service yards. Roof storm systems empty into an active stream supplied from re-use water of waste water from the treatment plant.
