TEDx Shorts podcast featuring SCCWRP engineer makes case for green infrastructure

Posted February 4, 2022

SCCWRP’s Dr. Elizabeth Fassman-Beck is featured in a newly released TEDx Shorts podcast discussing why runoff should be managed with green infrastructure instead of traditional flood control infrastructure.

The nine-minute podcast, titled “The Potential of Green Infrastructure” and released in November, discusses in plain language how aging stormwater infrastructure threatens access to clean water.

Fassman-Beck explains how advances in engineering have enabled stormwater managers to design infrastructure solutions that more closely mimic natural runoff patterns, and more effectively mitigate pollution from runoff.

The podcast is free to listen to via Google Podcasts; no subscription or login is required.
