“Residents of adjoining neighborhoods, especially on Broad Bay Island, were worried about the proposal at first, said Kal Kassir, a member of the Broad Bay Island Civic League. They didn’t want an industrial enterprise – envisioned as ugly, noisy and smelly – plunked down in the middle of their quiet neighborhood. They changed their minds after meeting with Lynnhaven River Now.”

The Center is on track to be the first commercial-scale building in the continental U.S. to earn net-zero water status. A rainwater collection system will store rainwater in tanks under the building and then filter it for hand-washing and drinking through a state-of-the-art water filtration system licensed by the State of Virginia’s Office of Drinking Water. The Center features waterless, composting toilets, and all grey water (wastewater generated from sinks and showers) will be channeled through a wetland constructed of native plants where natural processes will clean and return it to the underground aquifer.
