Tom Field Presenting at APWA Capital District Meeting
Tom Field, P.E., Senior Associate, is presenting at the September meeting of the APWA Capital District on September 21. Tom and other presenters will be discussing the Green Infrastructure Technical Design Guidance. This “toolkit” began with its inclusion as a task in the Albany Pool Communities Combined Sewer Overflow Long Term Control Plan (LTCP). The goal of this task in the Plan was to provide each of the six pool communities assistance in developing green infrastructure guidance for public and private application of GI. The team evaluated the current NYSDEC Stormwater Design Manual for opportunities to develop specific recommendations and expand upon current practices for use in the Albany Pool Communities and create a tool box the communities can readily employ to evaluate GI practices and encourage or require their adoption to manage stormwater in the Combined Sewer System area.
