Most of the site drains towards the Gravelpave2 areas at the perimeter of the site capturing most of the runoff from the asphalt parking and much of the roof drains.

The parking drive isle and bays receive heavy everyday parking in all seasons and have done so since 2004.

Parking occurs at up to 6 or 7 percent slopes on the Gravelpave2 surface.

Site grading creates a comprehensive drainage plan with swales at the bottom of the site to catch any possible overflow from heavy rain events.
