GEO 131 Climate Change
Runoff goes from grey to green. Low impact development
-Reduce impervious surface – Impervious: water flowing down on
-Reduce water flow rate
Storm water management ponds: Newmarket has them near armitage. Instead of rainfall flowing into sewage systems and creeks, it flows into a SWMP so sediments sink, and normal water rises: cleans it.
Human made wetlands; cleans and filters water, acts as a sponge. Absorbs water and slowly releases it. Within it, bacteria and other organisms act as decomposers - filters and traps.
Ditches act as bioswales: biological or human made system that helps trap water. Ditches would grow into vegetation and help transport water.
More sustainable water cycle theories:
Condensation – precipitation – runs off slope (community higher up) – Wetlands capture it – Then moves it to streams – evaporates from streams – repeats
