The webinar, “Improving Campustown: Using Green Infrastructure to Mitigate Flooding,” is now available to view on-demand. The educational event took place live Aug. 1, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. EST.

In the on-demand webinar, Rick Hitchcock, senior principal, and Mark Underwood, principal, of Hitchcock Design Group discuss green infrastructure improvements in Champaign, Ill. Additionally, Susan L. B. Jacobson discussed storm water improvements at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Ill.

For decades, the Campustown neighborhood near the highly channelized Boneyard Creek was subject to frequent and significant flooding. As part of comprehensive watershed improvement and related neighborhood redevelopment strategies, city leaders constructed extensive storm water improvement projects at Scott Park and the Second Street Basin. Webinar viewers will learn how the improvements have substantially reduced flooding, increased water quality, added valuable community space, connected neighborhoods, and stimulated private sector investment and redevelopment.
