Get Started

Green Infrastructure was a part of human society long before the term green infrastructure was coined, but it is becoming an increasingly important tool as our population grows and land-use change threatens the natural areas we rely on for essential ecosystem services. In this course, we focus on the use of green infrastructure systems to manage stormwater run-off from urban and agricultural areas. We discuss how natural water cycles are disrupted by land-use change and how green stormwater infrastructure systems can be a cost-effect solution to mitigate water pollution while providing co-benefits to local communities.

Course Objectives

  • Define green infrastructure
  • Investigate how natural water cycles have changed due to development
  • Understand the difference between combined sewer systems, separate sewer systems, and direct drainage areas
  • Explore how GSI can be used to improve water quality while providing co-benefits to local communities
