We have much to learn by studying nature and taking the time to tease out its secrets.

Dockside Green’s water treatment infrastructure is designed to take advantage of the fact that plant life in water based eco-systems provides incredibly effective and efficient water filtration.

In addition to being a key aesthetic feature in Dockside Green’s landscape, the green ribbon is the final stage of Dockside’s innovative wastewater treatment process.

Before flowing into the green ribbon, wastewater from Dockside’s residents is processed in an underground treatment facility on site.

Following processing, the water leaving the facility is recycled for use in landscape irrigation, toilet flushing, and cycling through the green ribbon.
