This document summarizes the results of a 2014 Green Infrastructure Technical Assistanc project to design elements to capture stormwater and reuse it on-site. Following a charrette held in June 2014, stakeholders decided to focus the design on the use of a cistern. Detailed designs were developed using climate data, an evaluation of irrigation demand, and typical cistern operating conditions to calculate the appropriate cistern size. As part of the project, the City wants to incorporate green infrastructure design principles on a larger scale into the City’s planning and development process.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
