Water Cooler Talk: Stormwater Bioretention Basin Functions
September 28, 2021 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Stormwater Bioretention basins, sometimes also referred to as rain gardens, are becoming a more common stormwater management practice in urban areas. During Water Cooler Talk: Stormwater Bioretention Basin Functions Lauren will discuss the results of research at sites in Pennsylvania and beyond with consideration of design variants like lined basins, managed release concept, and different vegetation. Performance metrics discussed will include hydrology, but will primarily focus on water quality processes related to nutrient cycling and metals retention in these management practices.
