Option 1BStormwaterManagement,Rate & Quantity½Limit disruption and pollutionof natural water flows bymanaging storm water run off A building that prior to its development had:
Less than or equal to
imperviousness and has implemented astorm water management plan that equals or is less than the pre-developed
1.5 year 24
hour rate & quantity discharge, OR
If greater than
imperviousness, has implemented a storm watermanagement plan which has reduced the pre-developed
1.5 year 24
hour rate & quantity discharge by
of the actual storm water loadfalling on the site. Pre-developed rate is set to equal actual annualaverage - unless this actual exceeds the P10Y average, in which caseuse this averageMitigation may be through a variety of means such as: Perviousness of site, stormwater retention ponds, capture of rainwater for reuse or othermeasureLEED Letter Template (Civil Engineer orOther responsible party)Declare that the post development 1.5year 24 hour peak discharge rate &quantity does not exceed the predevelopment rate for the same timeperiod, and that site imperviousness isless than or equal to 50% (providecalculations). In an audit, show no netincrease in imperviousness of site. ORDeclare & demonstrate that the stormwater management strategies result in arate and quantity of discharge that havebeen reduced by at least 25%. Includecalculations to prove that existing siteimperviousness exceeds 50%. In anaudit, provide a copy of the storm watermanagement plan & providecalculations to show how actions havereduced net imperviousness of site by25% vs. existingOption 1CStormwaterManagement,treatment½Limit disputation to naturalwater flows by eliminatingstormwater run off,increasing on site infiltrationand eliminating contaminantsA building that has in place a site area stormwater treatment system toremove:
Average annual site area
of total suspended solids
Average annual site area
total phosphorous These values are based on the average annual 2 year 24 hour storm. The building must implement and maintain BMP outlined in Chapter 4,Part 2 (Urban Runoff) of the US EPA’s Guidance Specifying ManagementMeasures for Sources of Nonpoint Pollution in Coastal Waters January1993 (Document No EPA 840B92002) or the local governments BMP,whichever is most stringentLEED Letter Template (Civil Engineer orresponsible party), declaring that thedesign meets or exceeds BMP asoutlined in EPA or local municipalstandard, whichever is most stringent,for removing TSS or TPEPA

Steep sloped roof, ≥2.12 slope, SRI = 29ORA building that has installed a green (vegetated) roof for at least
of the roof surface,ORA building having in combination high SRI roofs & vegetated roofs thatsatisfy the following area requirement: Total roof area ≤ [(area of SRI roof x 1.33) + ( area of vegetated roof x2)]Skylights/equipment etc are excluded from roof area calculationLEED Letter Template, signed byarchitect, civil engineer, pr responsibleparty
