Context 
• Climate Mitigation is all about carbon 
(reducing emissions) 
• Climate Adaptation is all about water
General Outline 
• Problem: There are changing patterns and there 
need to be new innovations for municipal 
infrastructure built with more useful and relevant 
data. 
• Solutions: Widespread application of GI 
incorporating storage and flexible conveyance in 
the landscape 
• Benefits: improve local community resilience, or 
the ability of a community to bounce back quickly 
from climate impacts
Climate Solutions New England (CSNE), 2014
Extreme Events Increasing 
% increase from 1958‐2012 in the amount of precipitation from 
extreme rain events (heaviest 1% of all daily events from 1958‐2012 
Source: Kenneth Kunkel, Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satelites, Noreth Carolina Sate and NOAA NCDC
• NOAA Rainfall 
data last updated 
in 1963 
• Research 
examining impacts 
including the last 
50 yrs show that 
28‐60% increase 
rainfall depths 
(Guo 2006) 
• infrastructure 
design today relies 
on outdated data

Green Infrastructure

  • 1. James Houle Program Manager UNH Stormwater Center
  • 2. Context • Climate Mitigation is all about carbon (reducing emissions) • Climate Adaptation is all about water
  • 3. General Outline • Problem: There are changing patterns and there need to be new innovations for municipal infrastructure built with more useful and relevant data. • Solutions: Widespread application of GI incorporating storage and flexible conveyance in the landscape • Benefits: improve local community resilience, or the ability of a community to bounce back quickly from climate impacts
  • 4. Climate Solutions New England (CSNE), 2014
  • 5. Extreme Events Increasing % increase from 1958‐2012 in the amount of precipitation from extreme rain events (heaviest 1% of all daily events from 1958‐2012 Source: Kenneth Kunkel, Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satelites, Noreth Carolina Sate and NOAA NCDC
  • 6. • NOAA Rainfall data last updated in 1963 • Research examining impacts including the last 50 yrs show that 28‐60% increase rainfall depths (Guo 2006) • infrastructure design today relies on outdated data
  • 7. Infrastructure will be increasingly compromised by climate‐related hazards, including sea level rise, coastal flooding, and intense precipitation events. Source: Antioch University of New England, 2009

  • 9. Three things you can do now 1.) Use up‐to‐date design standards 2.) Include multiple no‐risk improvements to all designs 3.) Identify hotspots and implement preventative GI pilot projects

  • 14. Municipalities are facing decisions about the construction or reconstruction of water resource infrastructure today that will have a profound impact on the size, scope, cost of drainage, and relative risk years into the future.
