IN-36: Stormwater Modeling
|0.00 / 0.50||
A brief description of the methodology/tool used to calculate the percentile local or regional rainfall events for which the institution manages runoff on-site using LID practices and green infrastructure:
The storm sewer system, for UTK conveys water from approximately 1 square mile of University owned land into several streams including Second Creek, Third Creek, East Fork Third Creek, and the Tennessee River. Throughout campus, stormwater runoff is collected in various Best Management Practice (BMP) devices, curb inlets, area drains, and similar drainage structures that lead to the storm sewer system. The runoff is conveyed primarily through underground piping which eventually discharges into open stream
channels before leaving University property.
