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.

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
