Green Infrastructure Posters at State of Estuary Conference in Oakland, CA

Jennifer Natali, Anneliese Sytsma and Ari Frink (MLA '17) shared their work on Green Infrastructure and Contra Costa County's Fifty-Year Plan at the State of the Estuary Conference in Oakland, CA on October 10-11, 2017. 

To address the problem of aging flood control infrastructure and eventual need for facility replacement, they are defining a framework for identifying opportunities to integrate multi-functional green infrastructure into existing suburban development in Walnut Creek Watershed. 

Their poster cluster presented three major perspectives of this effort:  1. Restoration of Aquatic Ecosystems, 2. Infiltration Suitability Mapping, and 3. Land Use Planning and Policy.
