Stony Industrial West Integrated Stormwater Management and Wetland Preservation Concept

$9.50 + tax (Refund Policy)

This project developed an integrated approach to providing the necessary stormwater management functions for a proposed industrial development with a means of preserving an existing natural wetland complex within the same development site. Routing runoff from some adjacent lots through bioswales and into the wetland complex provided enough average annual runoff volume to match predevelopment conditions and water quality treatment to protect the health of the local ecosystems. Integrating the storage capacity of the natural wetland with an adjacent stormwater management facility during infrequent flood events to provide the necessary flood control requirements, resulted in reduced construction costs and reduced land required for stormwater management, with a potential for an additional $8 million in lot sales revenues.
