Sustainable Stormwater Management in Linear Transportation Projects
January 23, 2019
Whether reducing quantity, improving quality or addressing both improvement measures; designing for good, effective and inexpensive stormwater management solutions can be a challenge, especially in physically constrained environments.
In this webinar, we will explore various stormwater best management practices, specifically related to linear transportation projects. Groundwater management, porous pavers, infiltration and bioretention design components will all be discussed, as well as creative environmental restoration measures. We will also discuss various stormwater and groundwater protection measures related to unexpected geotechnical failures and creative solutions that adhere to construction timelines.
