"The Inconvenient Impervious Truth:
Stormwater Management Mistakes and Opportunities"
There are a myriad of proven environmental management strategies for stormwater that improve water quality, protect infrastructure, and provide for a sustainable future for water resources. What society is missing are the incentives to get developments, designers, regulators (and campuses) to change their way of doing business. This talk will present examples of Low Impact Development (LID) stormwater techniques and discuss new policies that will make LID the wave of the future for stormwater management.
Support for this fishbowl comes from the Earth Week planning committee/Student Activities of Unity College.
