Stormwater runoff management areas

Stormwater Runoff Management

To limit disruption of natural hydrology and reduce water pollution, the CSE site features both quantity and quality management of stormwater runoff: detention basins retain and filter water before it enters the drainage system off site. Two basins on the site detain runoff from one- and two-year 24-hour design storms. In addition, the basins act as settling ponds that allow 80 percent of the suspended solids in the runoff to settle out of the water before it flows into the public system.
