Performance and Effectiveness of Urban Green
Infrastructure: Maximizing Benefits at the Subwatershed Scale through
Measurement, Modeling, and Community-Based Implementation

This project will demonstrate the performance of green infrastructure
(GI) technologies in combined sewer overflow areas while taking into
account costs and benefits. Community partners will be consulted to
ensure engagement at each step of the adoption and evaluation process.
Calibrating a subsurface flow model and studying systems on a
sub-watershed level will produce valuable results which will be
integrated into transferrable policy tools.
