Environmentally Sound Practices in the Home Building Industry: Chapter 06: Non-Structural Stormwater Devices
Chapter Abstract: This is clip 6 of 8 for this video. Non-structural run-off management devices include the reduction of paving in driveways, elimination of sidewalks, and vegetated centered cul-de-sacs. The use of porous paving materials will allow water to pass through rather than run-off. Guidance on replication of natural run-off management of a site can be found in reference manuals such as the “Stormwater Design Manual.”
