Urbanization and increased impervious cover impact the hydrology of a watershed. Increased runoff volume and flow rates result in increased erosion and streambank deterioration. Water quality also deteriorates as most pollutants are carried into surface water bodies. In this presentation Nature-based solutions that can be integrated into developing urbanized areas to mitigate the impact of increased impervious zones on the streams and creeks will be presented including design, maintenance and performance data.
