Stormwater planters are structural landscaped reservoirs used to collect, filter, and/or infiltrate stormwater runoff, allowing pollutants to settle and filter out as the water percolates through the planter soil before infiltrating into the ground below or being piped to its downstream destination.

SMART URBAN - Stormwater planters, born in Portland Oregon are being replicated nationwide for 'green' stormwater management.

How tree planting, rain gardens, swales and permeable pavements not only control pollution but also help cool urban heat islands, mitigate flooding, recharge groundwater, beautify neighborhoods and enhance nearby property values.  Linking features requires careful grading. The porous paving could also have an overflow towards the swale. You would rather have the swale ponding than the pavement

A new solution DEP is utilizing to reduce stormwater pollution and restore streambanks is called regenerative step pools.  In an eroded channel where stormwater frequently flows, a regenerative step pool allows water to be absorbed into the ground, while the pollutants are taken out of the water by sand and mulch. Pictured: regenerative step pools after the plantings and redesigns....

East Tennessee’s iconic water resources are a sustaining economic, social, and environmental asset. These resources are vulnerable to impacts from prevailing development patterns in the region, human activities, and existing stormwater infrastructure. With the Plan East Tennessee Region’s population poised to grow forty-three percent by 2040, reliance upon these water resources will increase while their health is further threatened by expanding development. Low Impact Development methods…
