About the Session

Would you like to make a difference in the sustainability and resiliency of water supplies and flood control? This is a perfect introduction to a range of case studies involving environmental quality projects as well as Master Plans and design. You'll leave this session with sustainable and resilient water strategies to incorporate into your next project. This presentation covers the benefits of these projects and case studies of various projects ranging from watershed-level stormwater capture projects to site-specific 100% stormwater infiltration projects to solve structural flooding and improve water quality and increase groundwater supplies.The presentation will begin with an overview, followed by a discussion of the benefits of sustainable and resilient water strategies. We will cover the Envision certification, as well as watershed-level projects, site-specific projects, campus-wide projects, and system-wide projects in order to capture a range of project scales and levels of complexity. We will end with a clear analysis of take-away concepts for implementation into your projects.
