dc.description.abstractThis research explores how a common homeowner can implement different sustainable methods to help improve stormwater runoff on a residential suburban property. Rain gardens, green roofs and permeable pavers are all methods that help reduce flooding and help with surface runoff. By replacing concrete driveways with permeable pavers and by adding rain gardens and a green roof to a property, stormwater will be filtered and absorbed, reducing the runoff significantly. Implementing these methods will show homeowners that there are more effective ways to manage stormwater rather than a catch basin, drain, or well. The site is located on Long Island, New York.en_US
