Based on the slope of the land around our Sagamore site, the main water flow is directed down White Plains Road. At the center of the road is a small peak where water is driven to opposite sides, hence the divergent arrows. Sagamore Street slopes slightly to the East where water is led away from our site into the street drain as shown. Water also drips down from the elevated cement supports and rail line, especially where vegetation is present. Vegetation’s roots loosen the soil allowing water to percolate through more easily. Our site gets water from the rain that falls directly onto its soil and from water draining over the streets and off buildings. The draining water enters the site through the inlet and over the sidewalk on the North side of the site.
