Reinventing Stormwater Management for the 21st Century
Time & Location

About the event
The 21st century has brought a new set of challenges to storm water management due to the combined effects of climate change, increased urbanization and saturation of pollutants in our biosphere. California has a unique set of objectives to both inhibit pollutant impacted storm water from reaching sensitive ecological receptors, as well as land use planning the incorporates redirection of precipitation for reuse. These obstacles can be addressed by the innovative bioremediation technique phytoremediation. This type of ecological engineering can be used to both remediate and restore surface water bodies such as streams, coastal shorelines, rivers, lakes and associated riparian habitats in between by using plants that is both cost effective and proven successful over the past 40 years. Learn more about how to prevent contaminants loaded in soils, groundwater and sediments from entering into storm water and other urban strategies to protect and increase watersheds health and viability.
