How do you define a "green street"? This interactive, online course tells the story of street renovations implementing Low Impact Development design strategies. Retrofitting conventional streets into "green streets" provides stormwater treatment to remove pollutants from stormwater runoff and when feasible allowed to infiltrate as recharge. Monitoring of stormwater runoff volumes and pollutant loads can be conducted to demonstrate the effectiveness of the retrofit projects. Converted green streets also allow for educational potential to raise awareness about stormwater pollution (and solutions). This course will focus on the many environmentally friendly green infrastructure initiatives in Chicago, Illinois.
