One page descriptions of a technique or action for a given designer, planner, engineer or project manager to take.
A single building can, and increasingly will be, billed for managing the quantity and quality of the stormwater runoff from its site. Often, the opportunities are greatest in a multi-building or campus setting.
Understanding the site water balance should be done in coordination with the project's civil designer. Understanding the potential for runoff and applying appropriate methods for mitigation rest upon a correct understating of the levels of water involved.
The use of swales, meadows, trees, constructed wetlands, porous paving, underground retention, and grey-water reuse facilities demonstrate the range of neighborhood or campus-level opportunities and become more cost effective at this larger level.
