Resilient Watersheds: Adaptive Stormwater Management for Watersheds and Wildlife - A Three-Part Virtual Short Course                      October 2, 11, and 16, 2018  

Urban streams are increasingly impacted by the double pressures of development and extreme weather trends. Use of climate adaptive stormwater practices can address these impacts, help restore the natural hydrology, and mitigate temperature and precipitation extremes. This three-part short course examines the use regenerative stormwater conveyances (RSC), an innovative green infrastructure practice, to build urban watershed resilience to storm, flood, and drought.  The first session reviews the principles of site assessment, design, engineering, and performance, including RSC project examples and research findings.  The second session highlights the Mill Creek Project case study, including the use of an RSC in a suite of adaptive stormwater control measures on a high school campus. The third session offers information to advance the use of climate adaptive stormwater practices at the local project level and potentially scale up to applications at the watershed scale.
