Several neighborhoods of West Philadelphia are built on the buried floodplain of the former Mill Creek Watershed. The city is gearing up to become the exemplar of municipal stormwater management and is eager for new applications of green infrastructure.

The Water, Landscape, & Urban Design studio at MIT analyzed the hydrological, social, and physical conditions of these neighborhoods. Through these studies, we were able to develop new proposals for infrastructure with benefits beyond stormwater management.
