Abstract: The proposed Savannah International Airport expansion required a coordinated effort between engineers and environmental scientists to develop a stormwater management plan which would utilize on-site wetland areas to provide flood attenuation and improve water quality. Minimization of wetland impacts through Best Management Practices was a key in the layout and site planning process. Mitigation for unavoidable impacts will be provided through restoration and enhancement of existing wetlands and creation of new wetlands habitat.
