2013 Parking Lot Improvements
Parking lots K, L, and N1

  • Permeable paving system (parking lots K, L, and N1)
    • Absorbs stormwater rather than allowing it to run directly into storm drains, detention facilities, or streams
  • Bioswales (parking lot N1)
    • Landscape elements designed to remove silt and pollution from suface runoff water
    • Slows down and treats runoff before gradually releasing it to surrounding waterwasy or storm sewer
  • LED lighting (parking lots K, L, and N1)
    • Reduced energy costs - an average of 50% savings
    • Longer life for lower maintenance and relamping costs
    • Mercury free and generates less heat
