Freshwater Science: Using Community Engagement to Study Stormwater Infrastructure Resiliency Against Climate Change

Scientists are unsure how increasing precipitation associated with climate change will impact storm sewer infrastructure along Lake Erie’s coast. Studies are needed to explore how solutions like green infrastructure and low impact development can reduce stormwater runoff compared to traditional, “gray” infrastructure. Dr. Suresh Sharma of Youngstown State University is studying how green infrastructure can mitigate climate change’s impact on stormwater runoff with an emphasis on community engagement. Methods include downscaling and bias correcting climate data from different climate models, as well as experimenting with various community-preferred green infrastructures for their efficacy in stormwater runoff reduction.
