Reusing Stormwater Can Release Untapped Benefits

Stormwater Strategies

On September 29th, Weber Thompson Landscape Architecture Principal Rachael Meyer was featured in the Daily Journal of Commerce Environmental Outlook special section. Her article, titled “Reusing Stormwater Can Release Untapped Benefits,” suggests that green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) could help mitigate the effects of stormwater runoff in the urban environment. GSI works because it mimics natural systems to absorb, delay and clean the water within a natural watershed before it reaches a collecting body of water.

Read the article on the DJC to learn about GSI strategies, or visit our website to learn about the green stormwater strategies that will be used at the Fremont Office Building.
