The Solution For Stormwater? Letting It Sink In
The study, led by Tom Low of Duany, Plater-Zyberk & Company's Charlotte, South Carolina office, looked at the financial effect of introducing a natural drainage system in the first phase of a 42-acre traditional neighborhood development, Griffin Park in Greenville County. The resultant 31 percent savings didn't surprise Low, who said "because much of what's been written about low-impact development has been based on large-lot conventional suburban subdivisions," that "there's a pressing need for information on how to blend natural drainage and New Urbanism."
