The Stormwater Filtration Project focuses on the portion of a manmade Waller Creek tributary running from Crestview Station along Airport Blvd to its confluence with the Creek at W Huntland Dr. The preliminary goal is to assess the impact of stormwater runoff from the surrounding area on the water quality of Waller Creek downstream by establishing routine and targeted monitoring of stormwater runoff quality and ambient surface water quality. The primary goals of this project are to allow engineering students to learn more about stormwater best management practices while engaging with their local community, expand the university’s network of community scientists, and develop a framework for implementing stormwater green infrastructure on a neighborhood scale. Civil and environmental engineering majors are preferred, but of course all majors are welcome.
