Stormwater Management for Urbanists*
Satisfying increasingly rigorous stormwater management requirements in new urbanist developments remains both an art and a science. Rising density raises the challenge. Proper design and implementation of stormwater management systems can add liveliness and sustainability to open space, while poor execution can create an anti-urban feel and long-term maintenance liabilities. In addition to offering planning and design solutions, the session will delve deeply into two promising urban project technologies: green roofs and pervious pavements. National pioneers will present enduring, beautifully built projects, focusing on both inspiration and application.
