EPA Smart Growth Study


This high-profile EPA study compared the costs and benefits of traditional neighborhood design (TND) (i.e., smart growth) to conventional suburban design (CSD).  Lotus Water assisted in developing the conceptual stormwater design for the CSD and TND scenarios and evaluated infrastructure costs for both.  The team’s analysis helped demonstrate the economic benefits of smart growth development patterns.
