Encouraging Green Infrastructure Practices
For Climate Resiliency
NACD Annual Meeting
February 12, 2024
Jennifer Fish, CPMSM
Director
We are the only local government agency with a natural resource focus
Mission: To Promote Responsible Land Use
Decisions for the Conservation, Protection, and
Improvement of Soil and Water Resources
Through Effective Partnering, Technical
Guidance, and Education.
OUR MISSION:
Hayden Run, Darby Creek Watershed
F r a n k l i n S o i l a n d Wa t e r C o n s e r va t i o n
Land Use and Climate Change
Nature based solutions can make up to 37% of the global climate
mitigation needs, currently makes up 3% of funding.
F r a n k l i n S o i l a n d Wa t e r C o n s e r va t i o n
Encouraging Green Infrastructure in the Face of Climate Change
1) Using the upper confidence limits of curve numbers in
stormwater runoff calculations
2) Engaging natural resource professionals before site design &
engineering commence
3) Provide technical support, incentives, and a regulatory
process that supports green infrastructure.
F r a n k l i n S o i l a n d Wa t e r C o n s e r va t i o n
Climate Change Impacts
• Local Annual Rainfall has increased from 38-42” over the
past two decades.
F r a n k l i n S o i l a n d Wa t e r C o n s e r va t i o n
Improve Available Data for Stormwater Runoff Calculations
1) Updating regional precipitation data models
2) Updating Atlas 14 data
3) Using the upper confidence limits of curve numbers based on
current Atlas 14 data
F r a n k l i n S o i l a n d Wa t e r C o n s e r va t i o n
Update current data and models
Use the Upper Limits of Stormwater Curve Numbers
Green Infrastructure: Site Assessment
F r a n k l i n S o i l a n d Wa t e r C o n s e r va t i o n
Green Infrastructure: Native Plants
Green Infrastructure: Subsoiling
F r a n k l i n S o i l a n d Wa t e r C o n s e r va t i o n
4- 6 inches
Green Infrastructure: Cost Savings
F r a n k l i n S o i l a n d Wa t e r C o n s e r va t i o n
Schneider Trucking: Cost Savings $26,000
Green Infrastructure: Benefits Overview
• Increase Ground Water Recharge
• Reduce grey infrastructure costs
• Increase habitat for pollinators, birds and wildlife
• Reduced water and fertilizer inputs
• Reduce heat from hard surfaces
• Reduce amount of stormwater runoff causing stream erosion & flooding
