GREEN POINTS: Built on a brownfield site, the Nationals Park is the first Major League Baseball stadium to receive LEED Silver certification from the Washington-based U.S. Green Building Council. Efficient field lighting, a 6,300-square-foot (585-m2) green roof and recycling help make the ballpark green. Millions of gallons of water will be saved each year through waterconserving plumbing fixtures and air-cooled chillers. About 20 percent of the ballpark’s construction used recycled materials and 5,500 tons (4990 metric tons) of construction waste was diverted from landfills. Because the site is close to the Anacostia River, a water-filtration system separates water used for cleaning the ballpark from rainwater falling on the ballpark. Both sources are treated before being released to the sanitary and storm-water systems. Special care also is given to screening organic debris, like peanut shells, from the storm-water system. Signs around the park educate visitors about the stadium’s sustainable aspects.
