A brief description of other technologies or strategies for stormwater management employed:

In 2007 we installed Eco-Stones, in cooperation with Harbec Plastics, in our Lot D retention ponds to encourage cattail growth and provide increased contact area for the root structure to uptake and remove pollutants. Our environmental science students have studied the pond, collected samples to determine pollution levels and we continue to see improved quality of the outfall stormwater. We installed a Butterfly Garden in 2010 in cooperation with the Senaca Park Zoo.
