 Breaking step crossing bridges - Bad Astronomy and Universe Today Forum
The incident to which I was refering was when in 1850 200 French infantry men were killed when a bridge collapsed due to the forced vibrations brought on by the soldiers marching in step.

The Prairie Crossing project has taken a series of measures to reduce runoff rates, runoff volumes and pollutant loads.  In addition to voluntary source controls, these measures include integrating large-scale restored landscapes into the development as a major element of the stormwater management system.
Open space at Prairie Crossing was planned to provide stormwater management for the project.  The system called the Stormwater Treatment Train©, was designed with sequential components that contribute to the treatment of stormwater before it leaves the site.
Because of its commitment to healthy ecosystems, the Prairie Crossing development is unique in northeastern Illinois and probably most of the country.  However, the concepts of conservation development and stormwater best management practices are rapidly gaining wider acceptance among developers and regulators.
