Implement stormwater management practices
Rationale: Implementing practices to manage the quality and quantity of stormwater runoff prevents pollution, erosion, and flooding, mitigating risk of injury, infection and illness from contaminated drinking water; stormwater management also prevents biodiversity loss, which supports exposure to diverse microbiota, contributing to a strengthened immune system.
Demonstrate compliance with the below:
Stormwater Management Plan (Full Credit):
To achieve full credit, demonstrate compliance with all of the following requirements:
- Provide a minimum of one qualifying stormwater infrastructure element.
Qualifying stormwater infrastructure elements may include but are not limited to the following:

- treats stormwater runoff from the site prior to entering local water sources
- treats stormwater separately from sewer water
- protect areas where chemicals and hazardous waste are stored during high precipitation events
- prevents oil, gas, and grease from entering sewer outflow and stormwater runoff.
Types of compliance documentation required:
- Annotated map/plan
- Annotated photographs
- Design drawings
- Certified statements
