Urban Stormwater: Science, Design, and Management
Urban runoff is a pervasive environmental problem that degrades water quality, aquatic communities, habitat and property values, and recreational uses. The course describes the major aspects of this problem defining the sources, characterizing the environmental impacts, and characterizing approaches to addressing those impacts by design and management. Working in interdisciplinary teams, students also develop and select appropriate management alternatives based on real-world examples.
