As part of a new outdoor retail shopping center, a stormwater management plan adhering to local BMP’s was developed. Several bioretention basins were strategically located throughout the property to capture stormwater runoff from the buildings and paved areas. DENREC B-14 bioretention soil was specified as it is the standardized mix for all bioretention basins constructed in the state of Delaware.
