Green Infrastructure Educational Video: New Orleans, LA

Summary: Dana Brown & Associates developed an animation to help the general public understand the problems and solutions with water living in southeast Louisiana. Currently our approach to deal with stormwater is to avoid it entirely and get it to the storm sewer as fast as possible, but this causes a lot of problems that most people are not aware of. The video highlights localized flooding issues as well the importance of groundwater recharge, subsidence related damages, and pollutant effects on the culture and economy of water based commerce and recreation. It illustrates the benefits of green infrastructure and the positive effects temporarily detaining of water, allowing infiltration, and the filtration through vegetation. Emphasis was placed on both water quantity as well as quality, and the surprising cost benefits of implementation.
