Event Description

The Philadelphia Water Department is currently in the middle of a 25-year, billion-dollar infrastructure project that will protect the City’s rivers and streams from sewage pollution. Called “Green City, Clean Waters” this initiative is groundbreaking in its unusual reliance on innovative "green stormwater infrastructure:" engineered soil and plant systems that reduce the amount of stormwater flowing into the City’s aged sewer system while providing numerous "co-benefits,” like local cooling, air quality improvements, and stress reduction. In February’s virtual Science on Tap, Alexis Schulman, PhD, Dolan Fellow for Innovation in Water Research at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, will discuss Philadelphia’s pollution prevention project and how it might be leveraged to provide community benefits to neighborhoods suffering from chronic underinvestment and cumulative environmental hazards.
