TMDL Masthead

Burton Shenkman Football Complex and Training Center

Several different LID practices were installed here in 2006. A bioretention area adjacent to the building was installed with a variety of perennials, including iris and black-eyed susan (picture below, left). This bioretention receives runoff from the roof of the large building.

A bioretention swale takes overflow from the first bioretention area, and was planted with a variety of grasses, shrubs, and perennials (picture, below, right). Stormwater is directed along the swale, which was designed to infiltrate a portion of the stormwater entering it.

Behind the building, a large bioretention/wet detention basin was installed. This area captures runoff from the building and adjacent impervious surfaces (picture, below, left).

A vehicle access road adjacent to the main entrance was paved with GrassPave® (picture, below, right). This product is a plastic grid paver that comes in a roll. It is applied over a stone or gravel base, and then filled with either soil/turf or crushed stone. In this case, it was planted with turf, but the traffic in the area caused the turf to fail over time.
