Seeking Sustainable Stormwater Solutions One Step at a Time

This presentation will highlight the recent successful implementation of green infrastructure projects in two neighborhoods that started with Walkable Watershed plans: one in the City of Richmond and one in the City of Petersburg. Each project showcases the commitment of project partners investing in long-term solutions that uniquely suit the needs of the surrounding neighborhood. Presenters will provide both technical details for the specific stormwater engineering solutions as well as the overall project context and partnerships that were critical to the successful implementation. In each case, however, the story isn’t over. A truly sustainable solution is one that can be maintained indefinitely; thus, considerations for long-term effectiveness and plans for continued investment to ensure success will be presented, as well.
