Sustainable Stormwater Management Facilities
Location: State of Maryland
Type: Stormwater Management Facility, Sustainable Design
Status: On the Board, On the Ground
For the last 18 years, PELA has been involved in the sustainable landscape design for a variety of stormwater management (SWM) facilities. These SWM facilities are located along highways, transit lines and urban streets, in highway interchanges, at transit stations, in housing developments, at college campuses, and in parks. Our goals have been to improve/enhance both the visual and environmental quality of the SWM facility and ensure the sustainability. Most recently, PELA provided landscape design of the SWM facilities in accordance with the Environmental Site Design (ESD) guidelines of the Maryland Department of Environment (MDE).
