Date: September/October 2006
Rather than dealing with stormwater on a project-by-project basis, Bryn Mawr College collaborated with local and state regulatory agencies to construct a pond, completed in 2002, to manage stormwater regionally. The benefits include a local township exemption from independent stormwater systems on future projects, the addition of an aesthetically pleasing water feature on campus, the potential to use water from the pond to irrigate playing fields, and the opportunity for faculty to utilize the pond as a natural laboratory. Discusses the award-winning project's institutional benefits, innovative and creative qualities and characteristics, how this practice can be used by others, management and employee commitment and involvement, and results, analysis, and customer feedback. Includes illustrations.
