UIC-2016-020 – Participatory modeling for a stormwater management planning protocol

Storm Water management is a challenge compounded with urban development. In urban and developed areas, impervious surfaces such as pavement and roofs prevent precipitation from naturally soaking into the ground, thus leading to flooding, erosion and impaired aquatic habits. Green infrastructure helps in alleviating such urban flooding. Researchers at UIC have developed a planning protocol which can examine flooding under various environmental conditions based upon policies and guidelines for easily laying out plans to control flooding. The model examines the effect of green infrastructure on urban storm water management on a neighborhood scale allowing the user to change various environmental conditions. It involves inputs from stakeholders and decision makers to design, test and discuss solutions to flooding in urban areas Mark Krivchenia krivchen@otm.uic.edu (312) 996-6626
