Hydrologic Assessment of Using Green Infrastructure to Mitigate the Impacts of Climate Change

Description:The presentation will discuss the methods and results of a hydrological assessment that was performed to determine if Low Impact Development can mitigate the increase in flooding that is predicted to occur in the Bowker Creek Watershed.The session will show how watershed hydrology may be affected by changes in climate, increases in impervious areas and by the introduction of green roofs, rain gardens and top soil amendments. The research indicates that in smaller urban watersheds, LID can play an important role in climate change adaptation.
