Restoration trajectories of stream ecosystems degraded by urban stormwater runoff: a large-scale experiment in urban hydrology and stream ecology
Grant number: LP130100295 | Funding period: 2014 - 2017
This project aims to assess innovative dispersed stormwater retention systems in catchments for protection and restoration of urban streams. It will improve the ecological condition of several study streams and provide scientific support for new policies and practices for urban water management, with multiple environmental and community benefits.
