Ecological stormwater systems : a design precedent at Crystal Glen Apartments in Anderson, Indiana
This creative project has defined and designed an ecological stormwater system. The design products enclosed include a master plan and numerous perspectives, construction documents, and stormwater runoff calculations for predevelopment rates, developed rates, and ecological stormwater retrofit rates for the site. The retrofit design hypothetically achieves the stormwater runoff quantity goals. Water quality measurements are out of the scope of this project therefore not calculated. The ecological stormwater system design suggests site improvement which could create a new sense of place for a positive, healthy, and educational quality of life, while serving as an example for solving similar site design and stormwater management problems.
