Stormwater In the City

…challenges students to build a model rainwater harvesting system that could supply certain household water uses while mitigating some of the human impacts on aquatic systems.  Students consider water quantity and quality issues arising in urban landscapes by exploring how stormwater drainage, surface permeability, and overland runoff can impact an aquatic system.  The program inspires creativity by challenging students to solve social, economic, and technical issues related to the design and use of rainwater harvesting systems.
