What is SS Credit 5 called?
Site Development
How many points are available for Site Development?
Two
What is the intent of the Site Development: Protect or Restore Habitat Credit 5.1?
Conserve existing natural areas and restore damaged areas to provide habitat and promote biodiversity.
What is required on greenfield sites for Site Development: Protect or Restore Habitat Credit 5.1
A Limit site disturbance to 40 feet beyond the building perimeter; 10 feet beyond surface walkways, patios, surface parking and utilities less than 12 inches in diameter; 15 feet beyond primary roadway curbs and main utility branch trenches; and 25 feet beyond constructed areas with permeable surfaces.
What is required on previously developed sites for Site Development: Protect or Restore Habitat Credit 5.1
A Restore or protect a minimum of 50% of the site area (excluding the building footprint) with native or adapted vegetation.
What is required for Site Development: Maximize Open Space Credit 5.2?
Reduce the development footprint and/or provide open space which exceeds the zoning requirements by 25% OR for areas with no zoning requirements, provide vegetated open space adjacent to the building equal to the building footprint, OR where a zoning ordinance exists, with no open space requirement, provide a vegetated open space equal to 20% of the project site area.
What is SS Credit 6 called?
Stormwater Design
What is the intent of the Storm water Design: Quantity Control Credit 6.1?
Limit disruption of natural hydrology by reducing impervious cover, increasing on-site infiltration, and managing storm water runoff.
What is the intent of Stormwater Design: Quality Control Credit 6.2?
Reduce or eliminate water pollution by reducing impervious cover, increasing onsite infiltration, eliminating source of contaminants, and removing pollutants from stormwater runoff.
How many points are available for Stormwater Design?
Two
What is required for Stormwater Design: Quantity Control Credit 6.1 - if existing imperviousness is less than or equal to 50%
A Implement a stormwater management plan that prevents the post-development peak discharge rate and quantity from exceeding the pre-development peak discharge rate and quantity for the one and two-year, 24 hour design storms, OR implement a stormwater management plan that protects receiving stream channels from excessive erosion by implementing a stream channel protection strategy and quantity control strategies.
What is required for Stormwater Design: Quantity Control Credit 6.1 - if existing imperviousness is greater than 50%
A Implement a stormwater management plan that results in a 25% decrease in the volume of stormwater runoff from the 2 year, 24 hour design storm.
In Stormwater Design: Quantity Control Credit 6.1 , what are potential strategies for managing storm water flow
Design the project site to maintain natural stormwater flows by promoting infiltration. Specify vegetated and pervious paving to minimize impervious surfaces. Reuse stormwater volumes generated for non- potable uses such as landscape irrigation, toilet and urinal flushing and custodial uses.
What is required for Stormwater Design: Quality Control Credit 6.2?
Implement a stormwater management plan that reduces impervious cover, promotes infiltration, and captures and treats stormwater from 90% of the average annual rainfall using acceptable best management practices (BMP's). BMP's used to treat runoff must be capable of removing 80% of the average annual post development total suspended solids load based on existing monitoring reports.
What document describes the practices to be used to reduce storm water TSS and TP?
EPA's Guidance Specifying Management Measures for Sources of Non-Point Pollution in Coastal Waters, January 1993 (Document #EPA 840-B-92-002)
What is SS Credit 7 called?
Heat Island Effect
What is the intent of the Heat Island Effect Credit?
Reduce heat islands to minimize impact on microclimate and human and wildlife habitat
How many points are available for Heat Island Effect?
Two
How much time is allowed for the growth of shade provided plantings, to meet the minimum standard to reduce non-roof heat islands in the Heat Island Effect: Non-Roof Credit 7.1
A 5 years
What are the requirements to reduce non-roof heat island effects in Heat Island Effect: Non- Roof Credit 7.1
A Provide any combination of the following for 50% of the site hardscape: shade (within 5 years of occupancy), paving materials with a solar reflectance index (SRI) of at least 29, open grid paving system OR place a minimum of 50% parking spaces under cover (w/ SRI of at least 29)
What reflectance and emissivity standards and characteristics are required for roofing under Heat Island Effect: Roof Credit 7.2
A Use Energy Star® compliant and high emissivity roofing of at least 0.9 when tested in accordance with ASTM 408 and/or ASTM C 1371. Roofing materials should have SRI values greater than 78 for low-sloped roofs and 29 for steep-sloped roofs (where SRI is measured according to ASTM E903, ASTM E1918, and ASTM E1980).
What percentage of a roof's surface area must meet the defined performance criteria for Heat Island Effect: Roof Credit 7.2
A Minimum of 75% of the roof surface OR install a green roof for at least 50% of the roof area, OR install combinations of high albedo and vegetated roof can be used providing they collectively cover greater than 100% (calculated) of the roof area.
What is SS Credit 8 called?
Light Pollution Reduction
What is the intent of the Light Pollution Reduction Credit?
Minimize light trespass from the building and site, reduce sky-glow to increase night sky access, improve nighttime visibility through glare reduction, and reduce development impact on nocturnal environments.
How many points are available for Light Pollution Reduction?
One
What is required for Light Pollution Reduction Credit 8.0?
For interior Lighting: the angle of maximum candela from each interior luminaire located in the building shall intersect opaque bldg interior surfaces OR all non-emergency interior lighting shall be automatically controlled to turn off during non-business hours. For exterior lighting: do not exceed 80% of the lighting power densities for exterior areas and 50% for building facades as defined IESNA Standard 90.1 - 2004. New Zones must be designated for every project: LZ1-LZ4, and projects shall follow all of the requirements for their specific zone.
