Our challenge with this project was an adjacent Class I trout stream which presented potential regulatory and financial challenges. We needed a solution which utilized low impact stormwater features.
The AC/a team developed unique, low impact stormwater features including a series of bio-filtration rain gardens, cisterns, rain barrels, pervious pavers, and a stormwater pond and managed the local & state permitting processes.
