Design Adaptations

Redevelopment

The potential for water quality improvements from more stringent stormwater requirements for redevelopment projects is considerable. To achieve these improvements, however, requires creative policy and engineering approaches at the local and state level. Learn more...

Stormwater in Coastal Plain

The coastal plain is different, or so they say! Many stormwater practices have evolved in the piedmont physiographic region of the Bay watershed and the design specifications have evolved with them; strongly oriented towards the rolling topography. Consequently, very few practices have been adapted for the very different conditions of the coastal plain: flat terrain,...Learn more...

Stormwater in Karst Topography

Karst terrain runs through the Chesapeake Bay watershed and encompasses portions of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. The issues of managing stormwater in areas of karst terrain are very complicated and there has been limited local and state guidance provided over the years. This training module provides the results of a collaborative effort by...Learn more...

Hotspots and Pollution Prevention

Stormwater “hotspots” can contribute a significant pollutant load to the stormwater system.
