UW Madison Lot 34

Stormwater Management

Parking lots are susceptible to stormwater damage. Rainwater runs off the impervious surface and erodes surrounding soil. This can severely undermine the stability of the parking lot. Runoff from parking lots can be damaging to vegetation as well. Lot 34 at University of Wisconsin, Madison was suffering from such stormwater damage. Envirolok Vegetated Retaining Wall System was able to provide a permanent and sustainable solution. Our retaining wall system stabilized and protected the slopes of the parking lot from stormwater damage. The native vegetation is naturally hardy and can withstand harsh weather and parking lot run off. This creates a beautiful and environmentally friendly solution. Other methods are not as sustainable.
