permeable pavers Permeable pavers are brick-like materials that are manufactured in a variety of shapes. Pavers fit together like tiles and are set with small gaps between them, creating grooves for water to infiltrate the soil beneath. Permeable pavers reduce stormwater runoff volume and flow rate, and increase groundwater infiltration and recharge. best management practice,stormwater management,pollutant discharge,elimination,green,landscape

Floating Wetlands Structure and Impact Emergent wetland species are planted in a buoyant matrix that floats at the water surface. The roots of these plants grow through the matrix and take up the nutrients they need to grow directly from the water, potentially decreasing nutrient concentrations.   diagram,floating,wetlands,water,quality,plants,chesapeake,bay,watershed,stormwater,nutrients

Multiple Benefits of Rain Gardens Gutters and downspouts installed onto buildings direct rainwater from roofs to rain gardens. Plants with deep root systems encourage stormwater infiltration and absorbs excess nutrient runoff.

Upland trees, phragmites marsh and shoreline protection. Concrete slabs, shown on the left side of the photo, can be spaced apart to provide wildlife access to and from wetlands and uplands while still providing some degree of shoreline protection. This innovative approach is generally considered an improvement over the common rip rap shown on the right side of this photo, which is a significant and often insurmountable obstacle to wildlife.
