Low-Impact Development for Road Stormwater Runoff Management to Reduce the Risk of Flooding and Water Pollution

Thursday, January 12 8:00 AM- 12:00 PM ET
Workshop | AICP Certification
Hui Li, Tongji University
Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Environmental Analysis in Transportation (Merged with ADC30 to form Standing Committee on Environmental Analysis and Ecology, AEP70, on 4/15/2020) (ADC10)

Urban land surfaces are replaced by impervious surfaces such as roads and buildings, which prevent rain or snow-water from naturally draining into the ground and lead to extensive stormwater runoff. Stormwater runoff into nearby rivers without being cleaned of pollutants will contaminate waters. Low-impact development, such as permeable pavements and Sponge City, can restore the land’s ability to naturally manage road stormwater runoff and reduce the risk of flooding and water pollution.
