Green Stormwater Infrastructure - Volume 1: Primer

This report defines and discusses green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) management strategies, a relatively new approach to regulation compliance. As more airports are proactively incorporating sustainable practices in all aspects of their operations, federal and state regulatory agencies are also promoting GSI strategies to comply with water regulations and requirements. There are some challenges in implementing GSI strategies, such as the perception that they are expensive and may conflict with safety and operational regulations, as well as a lack of understanding of what constitutes a GSI strategy, which includes techniques, technologies, and design elements. The Volume 1: Primer is written for the airport manager, planner, and engineer seeking to understand stormwater management and how GSI can comply with regulatory standards and requirements along with other benefits. Volume 2: Guidebook has been developed to assist airport staff with evaluating the applicability of a GSI strategy and how to select an appropriate GSI strategy.
