Integrating on-site water management practices: A field study in Prince George's County, Maryland

T. Saravanapavan, L. Shoemaker, J. Zhen, A. Davis, M. Clar, S. Meigs & M. Cheng.
Decentralized and integrated stormwater management is becoming an efficient alternative to conventional \342\200\234centralized\342\200\235 structural Best Management Practices (BMPs). Decentralized management techniques, targeted to provide infiltration and minimize runoff closer to the sources, not only meet the stormwater control targets but also maintain the natural ecosystem integrity. On the other hand, conservation and reuse of rainwater and grey water are also emerging as environmentally sensitive \342\200\234green\342\200\235 architectural techniques. Although both stormwater management and green architecture techniques...
