Plano Certified iSWM Silver
In the Summer of 2021, the City of Plano was awarded the silver iSWM designation!
Some of the iSWM outcomes the City of Plano has focused on and implemented include:
- designing stormwater infrastructure to fully developed land use conditions,
- limiting velocity in pipes with minimum and maximum values to prevent clogging and erosion,
- requiring adequate downstream conveyance for peak discharges,
- and requiring elevated finished floor elevations for structures in the 100-year flood elevation.
Congratulations, Plano, for all the great work you are doing to improve drainage facilities, protect streambanks, and mitigate flooding risk! For more information about how your community can become iSWM certified, please visit our resources page.
