Key to Success 6
Maximize the use of small spaces.
- Locate green infrastructure in tandem with project structures
- Include more small, decentralized green infrastructure in order to best reduce the size and cost associated with end-of-pipe stormwater management systems. This will also maximize infiltration and reduce the affects of groundwater mounding.
- Use every “left over” area in the site layout to place decentralized BMPs (i.e. parking islands, around gutters, etc.)
