Summary: Sometimes it is more efficient to split up the Rainstore3 into three separate sites instead of piping stormwater to one center location. That worked well for this project. Very little of this site has porous surfaces since it is nearly all occupied by the building or the asphalt paving. With using Rainstore3, the stormwater can be handled on site replenishing natural aquifers.
Canyon County Vehicle Maintenance is surrounded with three Rainstore3 sites underneath the parking lots.
