Historically, parking lots, roadways, and similar infrastructure have been single-purpose facilities – designed to move and store vehicles. However, especially in urban areas, these land covers consume a large percentage of the land area. The economics of urban land use is “driving” a different way of thinking about how these surfaces can serve multiple purposes, including stormwater management. This webcast will cover several ways of reimagining the parking lot and roadway as a place where stormwater can be reduced, stored, harvested, and treated. The webcast will feature case studies on green streets, permeable surfaces, rainwater storage and use, and incorporating vegetation into the mix.

Speakers:

Tom Price, PE, Director of Water Resources Engineering, Conservation Design Forum (Elmhurst, Illinois)

Rob Roseen, PhD, PE, Senior Water Resources Engineer, Geosyntec Consultants (New Hampshire)

Tim VanSeters, Manager, Sustainable Technologies at Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA)) (Ontario, Canada)
