Commercial Raingarden

Issue: A resort has overland flooding during spring thaw and heavy rains and must reduce an impervious surface area of 32 percent to meet current zoning requirements of 25 percent.

Action: Impervious offsets were constructed on the property to allow this resort to keep their current impervious spaces. Multiple raingardens and a stormwater pond were built to catch and treat the majority of the runoff from the roads and parking areas. And a pervious parking area was installed near the facility’s boat ramp to reduce the impact of runoff from the area.
