Environmental Site Design (ESD) Practices Report – South County Library

We provided site and stormwater design services for the Anne Arundel County South County Library expansion in southern Maryland a few years ago.  An “in the neighborhood”  site visit today found that construction was completed earlier this winter.  The design accomplished all stormwater management (including retrofit of un-managed areas due to Chesapeake Bay Critical Areas requirements)  with Environmental Site Design (ESD) practices.   The practices focused on careful grading of both impervious and pervious areas, resulting in impervious area disconnects and wet swales.  A series of videos follow that walk through the practices follow.
