How To Direct Stormwater into Silva Cells

Published on

On-site stormwater management and mimicking pre-development hydrology are becoming increasingly important design imperatives at every level. Trees and soils in suspended pavements are part of the toolkit for implementing meaningful stormwater control measures.

This presentation walks through some of the most common techniques for directing stormwater into Silva Cells, including: catch basins, sheetflow/curb cuts, and pervious pavement. Each technique is examined using real-life project examples that address the logic behind each design, including: project goals, pre-treatment, water distribution, and maintenance.

For further information on these topics, please refer to the recorded webinar found at the end of the presentation, which includes a detailed Q & A with expert panelists on the subject
