Advances in Green Infrastructure Development: Benefits from Point to Watershed Scale





Session ID#: 23796

Session Description:
Green Infrastructures (GIs) are increasingly being relied upon as integral elements of urban planning and for flood control and treatment of polluted urban runoff. Many cities and communities support the use of GIs as an alternative to conventional stormwater control measures as cost-effective and resilient approaches. Although GIs are shown to be effective in trapping pollutants and reducing urban runoff, their efficiency may be reduced in time if not properly maintained. Further, while GIs reduce surface runoff by infiltration, questions remain on whether this creates short-circuiting between stormwater runoff and groundwater. Combining these with the fact that GIs actually trap runoff from small areas, it is uncertain whether GIs contribute to measurable differences in the quality of waters at larger scales. In this regard, this session welcomes papers that look at the functioning of GIs at multiple scales, both spatially (point to watershed) and temporally (events to long term).
