Roadside ditches or storm drains/sewer systems, which is the "greener" option for a new residential development? Which gives the development?
the superior "character", rural character = ditches, suburban character = gutters and sewers?

It's not an either-or between the two. If there are no public sewers, then each home in the development requires its own septic system that meets regulations. Where there is no installed storm drainage, ditches and retention ponds in combination take care of rain runoff.

Oh, it's storm drains/sewer systems for me, all the way. All that poured concrete hacked through the local flora, fauna, geology and watertables is definitely the green way to go. Good for the environment. Oh yes.
