Which of the following best describes the institution’s approach to rainwater management?:
A brief description of the institution’s green infrastructure and LID practices:
Virginia Tech developments that disturb one acre or more are required to comply with the water quantity and water quality technical criteria of Virginia Tech’s Annual Standards and Specifications for Erosion and Sediment Control and Stormwater Management, based on the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality’s water quantity and water quality regulations. In addition to peak flow rate, velocity, and volume controls, these criteria require a reduction in site nutrient discharge using some type of LID practice, either through a decrease in impervious cover or through the implementation of stormwater runoff treatment in a water quality facility such as a bioretention filter.
The criteria are more stringent for Virginia Tech developments in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, where land disturbances of 2,500 square feet or more are subject to these same water quantity and water quality requirements.
