Utility-Scale Solar Site Construction Stormwater Management

As solar facility owners, designers, contractors expand their territories from the desert into areas with less-forgiving conditions for managing stormwater, many lessons are being learned. This presentation is provided from the perspective of a construction stormwater professional with experience on several utility-scale solar facilities in the wet, hilly southeastern US. Five areas of risk will be explored as well as a fundamental approach to managing stormwater that may be applied for success on all land-disturbing projects, regardless of their size or the type of infrastructure being constructed.
