dc.description.abstractcombination with a reduction in point source pollution and the maintenance of riparian buffer zones, urban stormwater infiltration has the potential to preserve ecosystem function by maintaining the natural morphology and flow patterns to which riparian species are adapted. Stormwater detention systems that are commonly required by community ordinances address local flooding, but do not address recharge of ground water, reduction in nonpoint source pollution loads, or stream bank erosion. Compact and cost effective infiltration methods that address all of these decrements to ecosystem function are described. Further research on the application of infiltration techniques to areas with relatively impermeable soils, including the Georgia Piedmont, is recommended.en_US
