Storm Water Management

The land’s major drainage features will be maintained in a natural state throughout Heritage. Planners and engineers are creatively designing around major drainage features while leaving natural buffer zones between development and the natural runoff channels.

Natural channels provide many benefits to Heritage:

  • Storm water flow is maintained, so historical drainage patterns remain intact.
  • Major drainage features provide migration corridors for wildlife in the area and maintain a critical habitat.
  • The drainage channels are pleasant natural landforms that will be enjoyed by those who use adjacent walking, bike and horse trails.
