Irrigation and Stormwater Treatment

Irrigation and Stormwater Treatment

(p.116) Chapter 7 Irrigation and Stormwater Treatment
The Green Leap

Mark E. Hostetler

University of California Press

This chapter discusses the importance of stormwater treatment and creating water-efficient irrigation systems pertaining to the concept of low-impact development (LID). The benefits to water quality and biodiversity are discussed when LID stormwater treatment trains and efficient irrigation are implemented. Strategies and examples are listed for how residents can maintain neighborhood stormwater and irrigation features and how they can look out for problems associated with water drainage. For developers, strategies and examples are discussed for building a stormwater treatment train and irrigation systems that benefit not only water quality and quantity but biodiversity as well. For policy makers, the removal of regulatory barriers is discussed, along with how one can create policies that address design, construction, and postconstruction phases of a LID development.

Keywords:   urban biodiversity, conservation, conservation subdivision, native plants, policy makers, developers, stormwater, low impact development, water quality, land stewardship
