- Implementing Stormwater Infiltration Practices at Vacant Parcels and Brownfield Sites - Report produced by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The document presents information to assist communities, developers, and other stakeholders in determining the appropriateness of implementing stormwater management practices that promote infiltration at vacant parcels and brownfield sites.
- Design Principles for Stormwater Management on Compacted, Contaminated Soils in Dense Urban Areas
- Sustainable Water Management on Brownfields Sites - produced by developed by the Environmental Finance Center Network (EFCN), University of Louisville. "This practice guide makes the case for using green infrastructure on brownfield sites as a way to offer an environmentally friendly amenity while also meeting cleanup requirements.The guide includes a brief history of brownfields, a description of cleanup practices, examples of potential uses of GI and LID on brownfield sites, a summary of current sources of funding for including GI and LID on a site, followed by case studies of developments that successfully included GI or LID."
- Storm Water Infiltration on Sites with Contaminated Soils - PowerPoint present by Jessica Dominguez, Sustainable Reuse Lead Brownfields Program – EPA Region 1.
- Pollution of soil and groundwater from infiltration of highly contaminated stormwater – A case study - abstract to journal article
- Implementing a Stormwater Sustainability Ratings System for Distressed and Vacant Urban Properties - Sarah Ramp, Independent Study CIT Honors Research. "This paper ultimately proposes a stormwater SRS [Sustainability Rating System] that can be adapted and implemented by municipalities to reduce the costs of stormwater runoff from vacant and distressed properties by incentivizing localized sustainable stormwater infrastructure."
