How do we adapt our built environment’s water footprint for a changing climate?
Decentralized strategies, or those that can be implemented at the building, campus or neighborhood scale, will contribute to water resiliency alongside investments in upgrades to municipal scale infrastructure. Selecting appropriate decentralized water strategies depends on a myriad of conditions such as building typology and use, regional regulatory climate, and site and watershed considerations. This session will share best practices from the perspective of a ‘One Water’ paradigm which seeks to unify often disparate water systems such as stormwater, wastewater, and water reuse.
