SPRING STORMWATER CORNER
The Village of Voorheesville is working with a group of engineers to develop Better Site Design protocols for new construction and redevelopment sites. Better Site Design incorporates non-structural and natural approaches to projects to reduce effects on our watershed. This is done by conserving natural areas, reducing impervious cover and better integrating stormwater treatment. The aim of better site design is to reduce the environmental-impact “footprint” of the site while retaining and enhancing the owner/developer’s purpose and vision for the site.
