Webinar: Green Streets in Dense Communities

September 12, 2018
1:00 pmto2:30 pm

This webinar will showcase results of a two year planning initiative by the City of Cambridge and the Charles River Watershed Association (CRWA) to identify and design green infrastructure strategies for dense, residential city streets. CRWA designed three individual “green streets”, an innovative stormwater management approach that captures rain where it falls by using vegetation, soil and engineered systems to slow, filter and clean stormwater runoff from impervious surfaces. Based on this design process and input from residents and various city departments, CRWA also designed a Green Streets Guidance document for the City to help facilitate incorporation of green infrastructure systems into all roadway improvement projects.
