Sustainable stormwater management, animated

A follow-up (or preface) to Dana Gumb’s lecture: as part of its series of sustainable design videos (including the brownfield remediation piece we featured recently), the American Society of Landscape Architects has produced an animated video on designing landscapes to assist in stormwater management.  The clip communicates the benefits of green roofs, permeable pavement, and bioswales—three of the most important infrastructural components in sustainable stormwater management.  It’s a short and clear introduction to the topic.
