Abstract

The Kansas City demonstration project on the use of green infrastructure to minimize combined sewer overflows (funded by the US EPA and supported by a wide range of national and local agencies) will use a variety of integrated practices and modeling approaches. This extensive project will collect data before, during, and after implementation of a variety of control practices in a 100 acre test watershed, and in a parallel control site. The reduction of discharges to the drainage system during wet weather will be calculated using models and verified through field monitoring. The continuous models will determine the decreased amount of stormwater discharged for each event as the storage and infiltration facilities dynamically fill and drain over an extended period of time.
