Managing stormwater runoff is increasingly difficult with climate change and the more frequent and intense storm events we are experiencing. Sustainable and climate resilient stormwater practices capture, clean, and store water on site, close to where it falls, and in doing so, effectively reduce runoff and improve water quality.  Climate resilient stormwater management practices in a rural area like Franklin County are an essential component of efforts to preserve natural resources, protect critical transportation infrastructure, and foster sustainable growth and development.

Details

The Sustainable Stormwater Management Plan for Franklin County utilizes a screening level approach for assessing potential stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) for three common types of transportation construction projects: Downtown RevitalizationComplete Streets, and Rural Road improvement projects.

FRCOG collaborated with three towns in each category, which served as stormwater pilot communities. Custom stormwater site assessments and annotated conceptual designs that illustrate the placement, layout, size and function of sustainable stormwater BMPs in two priority locations in each pilot community were developed in collaboration with town staff and highway departments.
