IN-36: Stormwater Modeling
Total adjusted for non-applicable credits
Office of Sustainability
Institution uses stormwater modeling to assess the impact of low impact development (LID) practices and green infrastructure on campus, as measured by the percentile local or regional rainfall events for which the institution manages runoff on-site using LID practices and green infrastructure.
To calculate the impact of green infrastructure, institutions may use the Green Infrastructure Modeling Toolkit (U.S. EPA), The Center for Neighborhood Technology’s Green Values Calculator, or an equivalent stormwater modeling methodology, tool, or calculator.
This credit is optional and may be earned by any institution that meets the criteria.
An institution earns 0.5 bonus points for managing on-site the runoff for the 90th percentile of regional or local rainfall events using LID practices and green infrastructure. Partial points are available. An institution that manages on-site the runoff for at least the 75th percentile of regional or local rainfall events using LID practices and green infrastructure earns 0.25 points.
