Adaptation Strategies for Miami Beach, Part 2: Green Infrastructure, Resilience, and Groundwater

Wednesday, October 18, 2017, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET

Speakers: Elizabeth Wheaton, Chief of Staff; Bruce Mowry, City Engineer; Carlos Tamayo, Civil Engineer I

The enhancement of the stormwater mitigation masterplan involves promoting and preserving natural environments (i.e., LIDs, green infrastructure, BMPs) to take advantage of their innate properties to manage excess surface waters while providing levels of treatment as well. Moreover, the concept of city resilience is incorporated into the entire picture to assess disaster risk and vulnerability by covering all facets of resilience (e.g., social, financial, infrastructure, cultural, etc.). Lastly, the porous geology and groundwater seeping vertically onto the streets, which only exacerbates flooding, is currently being undertaken through a comprehensive engineering/scientific approach with the ultimate goal of evaluating cutting-edge long term solutions for this problem.
