Sustainable Practices

Constructed, passive systems that can receive stormwater runoff and function by use of native plant species and well-drained soils, offer stormwater storage and treatment, naturally! These natural, passive systems include:

  • Raingardens
  • Biogardens (bioretention)
  • Infiltration basins
  • Grass swales
  • Rain barrels and cisterns
  • Green roofs
  • Porous pavement
