Understanding site conditions is critical when [[Screening LID Options]]. Gaining comprehensive knowledge of the proposed site requires a desktop review of relevant background information followed by field reconnaissance to verify the review and identify relevant site conditions not included in background information.
Analysis of Background Information ==
Reviewing background information will help provide preliminary understanding of side conditions, scope technical investigations for the site and determine project targets. It’s best to collect and review this information prior to field reconnaissance so that it is a targeted and efficient use of time.
* Structural reports and plans (to assess greenroof suitability)
* Servicing drawings (hydro, phone, gas, cable, and other utilities)
* Grading plans
* Stormwater management and drainage reports
* Sump-pump and/or foundation drain connection information
== Field Reconnaissance
of Site Conditions ==
When documenting side conditions for commercial, industrial, and multi-residential sites, investigate the following:
Once the analysis is complete, proceed to developing a list of recommended BMPs for implementation.
