Escape from the concrete jungle
Join us for a discussion of river restoration projects that have been undertaken in urban settings, including both successes and failures
Trapezoidal concrete drainage channels are a movie icon and potentially an efficient way to convey stormwater; but their presence is a sign of a displaced river system. Join us for this discussion of river restoration projects that have been undertaken in urban settings. We’ll present successes and failures in urban creek rehabilitation projects, including risks and benefits that accompany the replacement of concrete drains/channels with natural/meandering waterways.
