This grant will install the following green stormwater
1) Conveyer Belt Diversion Breaks are used on low
traffic roads to divert water off the road surface. It consists
of a piece of used conveyer belt bolted to treated lumber
and buried in the road.
2) Berms are formed by maintenance practices and road
erosion. Removal of the berms will encourage sheet flow
into surrounding land areas rather than the concentrated
flow into the unnecessary ditch created by the berm.
3) Bio-Swales are a form of bioretention used to partially
treat water quality, attenuate flooding potential, and
convey stormwater away from critical roadways.
4) Green Does Not Mean Grassy is a plan to restore
weathered shale areas using various species other than turf
grass. Groundcover will benefit water quality, decrease
runoff, and reduce sediment deposition.
