A Property Owner's Guide to Bioretention
The Detroit Property Owners Guide to Bioretention supports small business owners, nonprofits and faith-based organizations in Detroit who are looking to retrofit or add a GSI practice to their existing property and potentially receive DWSD drainage credit. This guide provides details on how to plan for and implement a bioretention basin on your non-residential property to better manage stormwater.
The guide was developed by Detroit Future City in collaboration with the Land+WaterWORKS Coalition, supported by the Erb Family Foundation.
