Sustainable Sites - Credit 6.2

Stormwater Design - Quality Control (1 points)

Back to LEED Checklist


The intent of this credit is to limit the disruption of natural water flows by managing stormwater runoff. To achieve this credit, a best management practice that removes 80% or more of the total suspended solids in stormwater must be used. Pervious concrete systems generally remove over 80% of total suspended solids and are considered a best management practice for treating stormwater. Vegitated roofs (green roofs) can also be used to meet the intent of this credit which are often supported by concrete structural systems. This credit is worth 1 point.
