Limit Impervious Surface Area

Limit Impervious Surface Area

Intent:

Limiting the amount of impervious surface area helps to recharge the groundwater.  Percolation through soil is one of the most effective means for filtering pollutants carried by storm water.  By minimizing impervious surfaces builders can reduce harmful pollutants carried off site while safely and effectively managing much of their storm water load onsite.

Additional Information/How to Implement:

Obtain any necessary agreements and permits and design driveway and parking areas compactly.
