Norfolk Southern stormwater project successful

Communities around Norfolk and the Elizabeth River, a tributary of the ecologically-important Chesapeake Bay in the USA, have benefitted from Norfolk Southern’s stormwater management system at the railroad’s Lamberts Point coal transloading facility in eastern Virginia.


When it rains, the multimillion-dollar recycling system collects, filters, and treats stormwater from the 425-acre export coal facility. Since the recycling system began operating in March 2013, the coal pier has reduced its use of municipal water by approximately 1.5 million gallons a month, giving an annual saving of about 18 million gallons.
