Hello aninaz,

Your Site Design vignette looks good to me. I cant see any glaring errors.

On the Site Grading I believe contour 108 should be angled down slope when it passes by the uphill side of the building to create a crown and divert water to the edges where you have the swales. As you are showing it contours 108 and 109 are too straight and water can still flow down to the building.

DO NOT create berms. Totally unnecessary. Runoff will turn when it reaches the swale.

Thank you Sparky. Do you have any comment on my site design or grading plan?
