Built Environment Track
This session addressed assessment, planning, and adaptation to better prepare for the next storm and to sustainably manage flooding, stormwater, and water supply to maintain human health and a vibrant local economy.
This session covered:
Knowledge about innovative stormwater control initiatives
How to best adjust building codes and master plans to build community resilience
Pioneering hydrology-based, sub-watershed approaches that have shown mitigation potential for stormwater and flooding and for loss and degradation in quality of water supplies
A comparison of costs of green strategies to traditional gray infrastructure
Participants left this session with an appreciation of maintaining landscapes to mitigate projected impacts along with enhanced knowledge of the application of low-impact development (LID), site design, and other smart growth practices to address these effects.
