End Date

Description
Course covers the design and implementation of a comprehensive stormwater treatment system incorporating new and expanded parking utilizing pervious concrete, vegetated bioswales, wet retention pond, and ultraviolet treatment technology in a public park context in Sarasota County. The system was designed to better filter pollutants at multiple points prior to discharge into the Gulf of Mexico, where previous water quality issues had caused frequent beach closures. The solutions employed show how stormwater treatment is not limited to serving only as a ultility but can also as a park feature.
