Structural stormwater management facilities are extreme sites that require vegetative layers to be functionally successful. Conditions oscillate between wet and extremely dry substrates throughout the growing season. Proper plant selection becomes more difficult with higher pH levels, salt concentrations, and compacted soil layers. By basing designs on naturally occurring plant communities that evolved under similar conditions, projects prove to be more successful. Explore native plant compositions that tolerate such difficult conditions and are vital for providing various functions and high ecological value. (Eligible for 1 LA CES/HSW credit)
