Summary: Onsite stormwater – from the Gym 2000 site and adjacent Day Care building site – filters in through the vegetated swale and also enters through inlets in high volume cases. The required position of the detention system and the amount of stormwater containment needed made Rainstore3 the only choice in this situation. An above ground (open) detention pond was not used for safety reasons: children frequent the area.
