A brief description of the institution’s stormwater modeling program and/or practices, including the methodologies and tools used:

Seattle Public Utilities conducted a stormwater facility credit (SFCP) analyis for NSC in 2015. SPU has developed a formula that is used to calculate the percentage credit for each eligible parcel. In this "credit calculator", SPU has assigned a uniform percentage credit for each type of approved stormwater system based on a weighting of the stormwater performance goals and the appropriate drainage discharge point (see Drainage Basin Map pdf) for that parcel. The credit calculator then considers information specific to the parcel (entered into the calculator by SPU), such as the percentage of the parcel’s impervious surface managed by the approved facility and the parcel's drainage rate category assignment.


For which of the following percentile local or regional rainfall events does the institution retain runoff on-site using LID practices and green infrastructure? (95th, 90th, 85th, 80th, 75th, Other):
Other (specify below)

The percentile local or regional rainfall event for which the institution retains runoff on-site using LID practices and green infrastructure (0-100):
