Project Description:
With climate change upon us, how do we mitigate against the threat of floods? Flooding can cause
economic and structural damage that takes years to recover from. Green Infrastructure (GI) elements
like rain barrels and green roofs can reduce this damage significantly. This project will work to upgrade
GI on Lehigh’s campus, ultimately becoming a model for GI upgrades city- and nation-wide.
 
Month/Year Project Began: May 2020
