sharing Stormwater benefits
BSLA Conference, Northeastern University
We had a great time at the Boston Society of Landscape Architects Conference! There were many thought-provoking topics covered throughout the day. The unique conference space in the architect studios at Northeastern University created an intimate setting for in-depth discussions with presenters and attendees. Leading a session entitled, “The Wet and Wild World of Constructed Wetlands.” HW’s principal landscape architect Brian Kuchar and water resource engineers, Jennifer Relstab and Michelle West, enjoyed spreading the good news about the benefits of constructed wetlands for stormwater management. They highlighted lessons learned, and success stories of a variety of wetland designs in a range of settings, hoping to inspire more green infrastructure designers to incorporate wetlands into their projects. There was a strong turnout for this session, with standing room only, so hopefully we will start seeing more of our favorite GI practices popping up throughout New England!
