The Urban Public Stormwater Managementfor the Sheridan-Quincy TrailCapstone explores the widespread urban environmental challenge of stormwater management and provides site-specific innovative and sustainable solutions to reduce localized flooding, improve ecological health of a flood zone, and educate the next generation of environmental stewards. This is accomplished through using nature as the construction material. Through green infrastructure, bioengineering, educational, and planning methods, this project addresses a pressing and costly environmental challenge while bolstering a public asset.
