Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards provide a complete framework for assessing building performance and meeting sustainability goals. Based on well-founded scientific standards, LEED emphasizes state of the art strategies for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.

Our Stormwater Management Systems Enable Green Building

Projects designed and constructed to comply with LEED guidelines benefit from stormwater management systems that emphasize sustainability modeled on natural hydrologic cycles. Innovative systems manufactured from recycled materials and that can be assembled on site are particularly important in earning LEED credits. Our products are used in Green Building projects in many ways, including:

  • Stormwater Detention and Recycling
  • Infiltration and Groundwater Recharge
  • Green Roofs and Planter Boxes
  • Permeable Paving

LEED Credits

The use of our stormwater management systems can help the LEED project designer earn credits in the following categories:

Sustainable Sites

Maximize open space (5.1)
Minimize development footprint (5.2)
Reduce stormwater quantity (6.1)
Improve stormwater quality (6.2)

Water Efficiency

Recycle stormwater (1.1, 1.2, 2)
Reduce demand on potable water (3.1, 3.2)

Materials and Resources

Recycled plastics (4.1, 4.2) Ship flat and assemble on site (5.1)
