New Single Family Home on large site in an area with no storm sewers. 

Bono Consulting was retained to provide topographic survey, tree identification by an arborist, and site engineering for this large new house in Northfield. Area has no storm sewers, but Northfield’s code required stormwater detention, so the challenge was to design a system that stored the storm water on the surface and discharged it to grade at the approved release rate, which is significantly less than the preconstruction conditions. 

A pond was designed with native plantings that had a small berm on the low end to contain the stormwater. The restrictor structure than released the storm water to an existing ditch along the roadway at lower than the preconstruction discharge.
