  • StormwaterPA - Assessing the Costs and Benefits of Green Infrastructure
    studies What has your experience been with the costs and benefits of different stormwater management methods Comments 3 Stacey Detwiler Mar 02 2012 at 10 56 AM American Rivers along with partners ASLA and WEF will be releasing a report at the end of the month on the economic benefits of green infrastructure practices We examine the current understanding of the cost effectiveness of these practices and look at how they can also increase energy efficiency and reduce energy costs reduce localized flooding and protect public health Not only can the green infrastructure option cost less these practices can also provide cost savings from reduced costs of treating large amounts of polluted runoff Treating less water can also translate into energy savings Green infrastructure can help reduce current and projected energy costs by keeping heating and cooling costs low Reducing runoff volumes by infiltrating rainwater where it falls can also mitigate localized flooding Green infrastructure practices reduce bacteria and pollutant loads in surface waters which can lower healthcare costs from gastrointestinal illnesses from recreational contact or contaminated drinking water Improving local water quality can minimize the economic impacts of beach and shellfish fishery closures These solutions can also improve air quality which helps reduce asthma rates mitigate the urban heat island effect to lower heat stress related fatalities and improve and increase green space for recreation There is no silver bullet solution to polluted runoff but green infrastructure practices offer a 21st century tool to address our current water management challenges that also provide multiple benefits to communities Stay tuned for more Hye Yeong Kwon Feb 04 2015 at 03 43 PM Unapproved Stacy sorry I m just seeing this comment Good to hear from you I agree that green infrastructure practices can be beneficial in many ways The article comments on the definition of green infrastructure which has changed over the years from a broad brush of practices to what seems to be a very specific list of structural BMPs This articles discusses the benefits of other green practices beyond ones like green roofs and bioretention While these practices should be in the toolbox they are not the only ones For example if one looks at the pollutant removal rates of other practices like eliminating dry weather discharges and stream restoration the costs of bioretention and green roofs are orders of magnitude higher That is not to suggest we should choose one from the other Simply that we should add these in the mix of practices to green infrastructure Lastly I wanted to point out a little know statistic about 75 of communities in the US are on separated systems and the cost benefit ratio of using these structural practices bioretention green roofs etc to reduce pollution is significantly much better in combined sewer communities Most of the cost studies I ve seen make an economic case based in combined sewer communities for just this reason Anyway thank you stormwaterPA Blog for posting and Stacy for responding Reid Christianson

  • StormwaterPA - Local craft beer raises awareness and funds for watershed
    it s important for those of us who care about watershed quality to pay attention to innovative methods like this one that serve a twofold function to raise funding to protect a watershed and to educate more people about their local waterways Here s a short video that Victory posted about this ale Since I share the same hometown as the Victory Brewing Company Downingtown PA I can especially relate to their respect for the Brandywine Creek They are sponsoring a competition for photographs of the Brandywine Creek that ends in mid May You can learn more about it and enter your own photos at MyCreek org Imagine if more businesses recognized the importance of their local water source on the sustainability of their company community and environment If you have examples of more cool awareness raising ideas like this one send them my way or leave a quick comment Comments 1 Kristi Jun 26 2012 at 05 51 PM What an incredible way to raise awareness about watershed quality Being from Oregon I can really appreciate this combination Cheers Name Email Website Notify of New Replies Allowed tags b i br Add a new comment Preview Post RSS Feed
