VETERANS HOME BMPS
This retrofit design added green stormwater infrastructure to a veterans' home with six acres of building roofs and site pavement. Bioretention gardens, linear bioswales, and rain gardens were added to manage and infiltrate the 2.5 million gallons of rainwater that falls on the site annually.
"Although we had standing water in all our rain gardens this morning I can't imagine what our
grounds would have been like with 4 inches of rain coming off our 3 acres of roof. Thank you for your
vision and all the work and effort you devoted to designing, and implementing this important project."
— Jeffery Smith, Veterans Home Director, June 2014.
