Green Infrastructure and Flood Resiliency-Land Use Management as an Adaptation Strategy in the Built Environment
January 29th, 2015
Presenter: Dr. Rob Roseen, Associate at Geosyntec Consultants in Portsmouth, NH
This webinar addressed assessment, planning, and adaptation to not only better prepare for the next emergency, but to sustainably manage flooding, and stormwater to maintain human health and a vibrant local economy. Participants left this webinar with knowledge about the latest innovative approaches to understand the effects of inland flooding and apply low-impact development (LID), site design, and smart growth practices at different scales of implementation. There is reference to pioneering hydrology-based, sub-watershed approaches that have shown mitigation potential not only for storm water and flooding, but to the loss and degradation in water quality.
