    8. 8. Outlet to combined sewer systemThis connection will allow for the stormwater runoff to bedischarged to the sewer system, but only in very heavy stormswhen the runoff exceeds the capacity of the system. Stormwater chambers This system captures the rooftop stormwater runoff. It allows the water to drain naturally into the sandy soils under it, instead of discharging stormwater runoff to the combined sewer system. Note: No stormwater runoff is expected from this site through the 100-year storm event. The system will reduce runoff by 1,000,000 gallons per year. #neorsdGREEN
