Stormwater Management with Greenhouse's Carmen Agouridis

When it rains on roads, rooftops and parking lots at the University of Kentucky, where does all of the untreated stormwater go? Stormwater flows across these impervious surfaces picking up pollutants such as sediment, nutrients, pathogens, and trash before it flows through a series storm sewers on its ways to streams. Currently, this stormwater is not treated, but can we change that? Various entities on campus decided to tackle this question including Drs. Carmen Agouridis (Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering), Ned Crankshaw and Brian Lee (Landscape Architecture), and Rick Durham (Horticulture); the Tracy Farmer Institute for Sustainability and the Environment; and the Department of Environmental Management . What started out as a student vision, for turning a non-functioning detention basin into a beneficial stormwater treatment system, has become a reality thanks in part to funding from UK’s Student Sustainability Council and the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government.
