Storm water management is a major concern for cities with outdated combined sewer systems. Uncontrolled storm water pollutes urban watersheds, and impairs ecological functions in streams and rivers. Evapotranspiration by trees is expected to be a significant GI component that diverts water from sewer systems, and storm water interception by green infrastructure (GI) installations with urban trees will likely be a major contributor to improving overall runoff control. It is important to assess the performance of these trees to better understand their contributions to storm water management. The research to be presented in this webinar not only confirms that stormwater tree trenches can be effective at managing stormwater but it also holds implications for further application of stormwater tree trenches since the selection of tree species can determine the effectiveness of the system.
