Parking Lot Drainage Design: Gainesville, Floridaby James E. Scholl, CH2M Hill, Gainesville, FL, USA,
Abstract: The construction of a 10-acre (4. 05 ha) parking facility (1,000-car capacity) at the University of Florida during 1984 presented the potential for increasing downstream flooding and for impacting receiving water quality. Stormwater management was a key design issue in addressing these concerns. Options considered included a single regional stormwater pond, onsite swales, and porous pavement. Final design utilized onsite swales, since the price of imported ballast rock made porous paving prohibitively expensive. Design calculations were performed using the HYMO computer program for sizing drainage facilities and evaluating downstream flooding.
