On the Job
Advanced Pavement Technology (APT) held a field day seminar on August 31st for storm water management. The event was held onsite at Cascades Park in Bloomington IN. The design team was onsite to answer questions on the Bio-Aquifer Storm System or BASS. This system improves the environment with the control of storm water run-off and promotion of a filtering process that improves water quality by removing contaminants before entering the soil. The BASS system controls run-off volumes to be near pre-development conditions. It detains storm water under parking areas, eliminating the use of retention ponds as well as qualifying for LEED credits.
