Applying the Blueprint philosophy promoting the integration of public and private stakeholder interests to work toward a common goal – supporting the sustainable use of natural resources – this much-needed stormwater facility was designed to function as a park as well. This project recognizes that highways coexist with other land uses. Cost-effective approaches to stormwater management can yield watershed protection and improvements that protect the health, safety and welfare of residents, as well as provide stormwater and groundwater-quality monitoring.
