Lifetime Fitness on Falls of the Neuse Rd. in North Raleigh constructed a system of wetlands and ponds to help reduce pollution in runoff and reduce flooding. The system is seen behind the building on April 27, 2017. Water from the parking lot goes into the wetlands, foreground, where the pollutants settle out and are consumed by the vegetation and organisms. The water then goes to the holding pond, background, where it is held to be pumped and released into the city's stormwater drainage system.
