This session is designed to outline the problems associated with storm water runoff in urban settings and provide examples of elements that may be included in the planning stages of a project to address the problem and a cost comparison of traditional versus green initiative elements. The examples shown use a variety of features appropriate for Alaskan projects with variable sizes, settings, and budget constraints. There is no regulatory preference for using any of the elements described in the session; they are presented to provide audience members with information only. The educational purpose is to describe a persistent problem with urban construction- storm water runoff; and presents the audience with real-life strategies to address the problem. The presentation will present an overview of the problem and a catalog of different green initiative elements that have been successfully incorporated into the planning process of the projects.
