Lake Shore Green Infrastructure

The regular flooding of a Lake Shore neighborhood has caused damage to residential properties. Since the neighborhood is in a low-lying area with no stormwater infrastructure, American Structurepoint has been asked to evaluate green infrastructure options that would allow storm water to be infiltrated and/or stored in the area. This area is also along a lake front so aesthetics should be taken into consideration.

The team will complete an initial drainage report to evaluate the existing flooding conditions and determine the total volume of stormwater that needs to be captured in order to mitigate the flooding issues. The students will then propose a design based on the findings from the drainage report. The proposed design should include a layout of the green infrastructure element locations and sizes for each green infrastructure element.
