Green Features

The Green Features presented in this section are multi-dimensional practices that meet traditional water quality and quantity standards outlined in many stormwater ordinances, as well as achieving planning, urban design, and landscaping objectives. The practices are designed to address both the quantity and quality of runoff from new and existing developed sites.  These measures can be designed and implemented in new developments as well as retrofitted into existing developments in cost effective ways. The practices discussed here include bioswales and rain gardens, green roofs, native landscape systems, porous pavements, rain water harvesting, and waste water recycling and reuse. Properly designed, these practices can help manage rainwater while providing wildlife habitat and quality open space.
