The Role of Suspended Pavement Solutions in Achieving LID Stormwater Goals

Description:The role of suspended pavement solutions in achieving lid stormwater goals. Presenter: Michael James, Hon Pub. Admin., DeepRoot Canada Corp Traditional LID Stormwater solutions such as Bioretention swales are difficult to apply in dense urban settings - the place we need LID solutions the most. • Land is too expensive. • Not enough space. • Loss of parking. • High Maintenance costs. This presentation will demonstrate how Suspended Pavement Systems are providing all of the services of a traditional bioretention swale without the associated cost of using bioretention swales in downtown dense urban settings. This presentation will use 3rd party peer reviewed research and case studies to demonstrate: • How bioretension swales work : the integration of trees/soil/stormwater. • The cost savings that LID solutions can provide compared to traditional large pipe solutions. • A review of the various forms that Suspended Pavement Systems come in. • Demonstrate through the use of case studies how Suspended Pavement Systems can provide LID stormwater services. economically without the problems associated with traditional LID solutions in downtown dense urban settings.
