Urban Hydrology and Green Stormwater Infrastructure: An Overview

Green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) has positioned itself as a solution for many issues facing urban environments, not just stormwater. Because of this, there is a lot of hype around the US among municipalities, engineers, and urban planners to name a few. This presentation will go over the basics of urban hydrology, the history of how we got here, and modern issues that GSI can address. We will review GSI solutions and lessons learned. Drawing from my experience on the ground with pilot projects in New York City and Philadelphia, I will share my thoughts and recommendations moving forward.
