TH09 - Boston Groundwater Recharge- Why? How? & Results!

Thursday, November 29 from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM « Back

Abstract Text:

In 2006, Article 32 of the City of Boston Zoning Code was implemented thereby creating the Groundwater Conservation Overlay District which requires groundwater recharge for all new/renovated projects. In the past 12 years, engineers have implemented creative ways to recharge groundwater in the dense urban environment and have also discovered additional environmental benefits. The panel will discuss the purpose of the regulation, the various recharge methods, and its impacts.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion participants will have a clear understanding of who the Boston Groundwater Trust is and what their role is in the permitting process

Upon completion, participants will be familiar with the various ways projects in dense urban settings comply with Article 32

Upon completion, participants will understand the environmental and sustainable benefits that groundwater recharge provides

Upon completion, participants will be prepared to successfully implement ground water recharge into the design and permitting process
