Description
Onsite Storm Water Management (SWM) is becoming increasingly important and, in many cases, mandatory. Concerns regarding municipal sewer system performance and watershed health have generated numerous requirements and techniques to mitigate the effects of storms at the local or site level. Following an overview of these issues, this course examines, in detail, a high-performance system of permeable plastic paving grids that addresses such issues while meeting the most stringent demands of onsite traffic, aesthetics, and SWM. This examination includes installation techniques, details, and specifications.
