Grant #21

Low Impact Development (LID) Demonstration Project at UNR

This project is associated with the construction of the new student union building at UNR and includes the installation of pervious pavers in foot traffic areas and the construction of a retention basin to capture run-off from paved vehicle areas. The intent is to reduce storm run-off from the facility that would eventually enter the Truckee River.

TMWA Benefit:

If successful, this LID concept could be applied on a broader scale to reduce storm water run-off to the river, thus providing water quality benefits to the river and TMWA.
