Pawling Subdivision Clearing and Grading Reduction


Vegetated sloops at a Pawling subdivision in Dutchess CountyThis reduction of clearing and grading is an example of green infrastructure in a residential setting. In reducing clearing and grading, steep sloped surfaces are vegetated and allowed to grow in order to limit the flow velocities of surface runoff, reducing erosion, and encouraging infiltration of stormwater.
