Abstract: Completed in the spring of 2014, this storm-water runoff pollution reduction installation serves a drainage area of 8,655 square feet. This model, developed by USFS Products Lab, sends storm-water through an underground settling tank before allowing the water to drain into a dual box filtration system. The system is covered by a wooden deck that features concealed access panels for water- monitoring. The deck has served as a neighborhood resource used for community gatherings.
