Key facts

  • Opens: Monday 22 May 2023
  • Number of places: 1

Overview

Green infrastructure like raingardens can be used to capture and filter the water from roads and paving, cleaning it and thus increasing its potential uses. This research explores how the soils, aggregates in the raingardens can be used to enhance water cleaning, and explores ways of optimizing further water cleaning to increase the potential use of the stormwater.
