CDRPC Local Government Workshop Webinar: Assessing Green Infrastructure: Kingston’s Uptown Parking Lots
Green infrastructure is an important tool to manage stormwater and reduce runoff. This study focused on assessing the performance of 13 different green infrastructure practices in 2 parking lots in the City of Kingston in 2017. The study included a quantitative assessment of water level and infiltration in 10 of the practices (bioretention areas, rain gardens, and dry wells) from May-November 2017. Frequent visual observations provided context for water level data, along with important lessons learned on design and maintenance for future green infrastructure installations.
