Title: Civic Stormwater Gardens: An Ecological Solution for Cities with CSOs
Can public accept civic storm water gardens as a means to purify runoff and reduce combined sewer overflow events in Lowell Massachussetts?
This P3 project is researching and testing the social, economic, and environmental sustainability of civic stormwater gardens to reduce combined sewer overflows and purify runoff on a site in Lowell, Mass. The conclusions will serve as a model for later project phases and for improving public perception of post-industrial brownfield sites in both developed and developing countries.
