Urban Omnibus » Mitigate, Design, Restore: A Conversation on Hydrology and Habitat

Urban Omnibus

“The recognition that we can build thriving cities and preserve crucial natural habitats is an ethos strongly advanced by Eric Rothstein, a hydrologist who has been instrumental in green infrastructure’s growing recognition, first as a City employee and now as principal of the seemingly ubiquitous water resource planning and habitat restoration firm eDesign Dynamics. And while Rothstein sees great potential for environmental restoration to provide stormwater and waste management services along with beautiful spaces, he bristles at the overstatement of certain projects’ ability to protect us from powerful storms. Here, Rothstein lets us in on the particular challenges of restoration, mitigation, and water resources management in New York and offers a measured but optimistic assessment of the role of green infrastructure in fostering sustainable urban development.”
