Description

The ISU Research Park Stormwater Retrofit is a strategic plan which, once made available to officials and the public, can be used as a guiding tool in the continued development and modernization of Phase 1 of the ISU Research Park. The plan is centered around stormwater management, with planning and best man management practices suggested both as a retrofit to current properties and a design guide for future development. These best management practices focus on increasing quality of stormwater runoff, reducing runoff quantity, increasing groundwater infiltration, or any combination of the three. Through these means, the research park will not only have a cleaner environment with fewer flood or other infrastructure problems, but will also contribute a reduced burden to areas downstream. By having facilities that are stormwater-conscious, the ISU Research Park can lead the way by serving as an example for other areas within campus and for other university or public facilities across the nation and across the world.
