This project will demonstrate the performance of green infrastructure (GI) technologies in combined sewer overflow areas while taking into account costs and benefits. Community partners will be consulted to ensure engagement at each step of the adoption and evaluation process. Calibrating a subsurface flow model and studying systems on a sub-watershed level will produce valuable results which will be integrated into transferrable policy tools.
