Stormwater Management Opportunities for Smilie Memorial Elementary School, Bolton, Vermont

Stormwater from the Smilie Memorial Elementary School campus flowed, generally un-treated, to Joiner Brook and then to the Winooski River. Building on the success of similar work at Cabot School, the Friends of the Winooski River retained stone to assess the campus and identify possible practices for stormwater mitigation and water quality improvement. Stone developed a stormwater management plan for the campus, summarizing results from a field screening and feasibility evaluation of potential stormwater mitigation strategies. An initial list of nine site improvements and stormwater treatment opportunities was narrowed to three implementation projects.
