CSN Campus Stormwater Series: Climate Resilience at UMBC
College and university campuses represent a tremendous opportunity for advancing the field of stormwater management. They often have space available to implement projects, are frequently undergoing improvements and redevelopment, and have access to talented faculty and eager students. However, the challenges that comes with managing an ever-growing list of stormwater assets with limited staff resources and varied priorities are not to be understated. In this series, we will explore these challenges and opportunities in more detail with representatives from campuses across the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
Next up in this series, we will hear from University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) as we discuss stormwater management in the context of climate resilience on campus. Ryan will talk about UMBC’s efforts to identify areas of campus most vulnerable to flooding, improve their BMP maintenance procedures, and even explore the use of climate-change informed IDF curves for stormwater design.
