The Greening of Stormwater Management Starts in a Parking Lot

The is a great link to information and graphics relating to the inconsistent administration of parking lot requirements in the United States (the author has additional information coming on educational facility parking - which will be interesting).  See my previous discussion on parking lots - Empty Spaces.   Local space requirements make little sense (Triple Bottom Line sense - economic, social, and environmental) and are wildly inconsistent. 

It is very expensive and unsustainable to manage stormwater when 25% of a given community by area is made up of parking lots (empty parking lots).
