Project Description

The Central Utility Operations Stormwater Management and Stream and Wetland Restoration Project was redeveloped with a design approach which included a LEED Silver building (USGBC) and an integrated stormwater management system. The comprehensive and innovative solution eliminated stormwater pipes and drains – the first of its kind in the area – and utilized a series of upland practices including bioretention, cobble-bedded parking lot, conservation buffers, swales, Step Pool Storm Conveyance (SPSC), native plantings as well as a Regenerative Stream Channel (RSC) to restore eroded Branch Creek and reconnect it back to its historic floodplain. Congratulations to Anne Arundel County (Maryland) for this exemplary model and for their purposeful commitment to environmental stewardship.
