Are Low Impact Development Practices Future Climate-Ready for Urban Stormwater Management?

Abstract

Stormwater management (in both quantity and quality) has obtained significant impetus in the wake of increasing concerns over both our water resources and natural ecosystems. The objectives of stormwater management for urban settings are to reduce stormwater amount and improve stormwater quality to avoid the quality degradation in natural receiving water bodies. Under the circumstance of urbanization combined with climate change, low impact development practices (LIDs) has been believed and demonstrated to be “no-regret” option for managing urban stormwater runoff. However the direction, rate, and magnitude of change in terms of their role in managing stormwater quality in a changing climate is not very clear yet, as the role of LIDs evolves temporally and is affected by physical, hydrological, and environmental conditions. In this presentation, recent research results from several LID research projects with particular focus on the temporal evolution of LID performance will be presented. In addition, the research on climate change impacts on stormwater will be included into the presentation. At the end of the presentation, future research will be discussed.

Dr. He currently   is an Associate Professor of the Department of Civil Engineering, Schulich   School of Engineering, the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Dr. He's   research is in the field of water resources engineering particularly focusing   on better understanding physical mechanisms through field monitoring and both   physically-based and data-driven modeling. Dr. He has particular interest in   advancing the understanding of how to more efficiently manage water resources   under both natural and anthropogenic stressors.
