The Naval Support Activity Base is a large complex of expansive warehouses and paved surfaces. It was determined based on new BMP’s that the base was exceeding its impervious surface allowance. In an effort to manage the base’s stormwater from leaving the site, an obsolete warehouse was demolished and a large bioretention basin was installed in its footprint.
