Abstract: This paper describes a comparative tool that was developed to provide useful, technical information on the benefits of green drainage-management techniques by comparing them with the benefits of conventional techniques. This tool was developed to provide quantitative information for both residents and municipalities on the benefits of green techniques, in terms of runoff and discharge levels, detention requirements, and economics on both the lot and 40-acre area scales.
