During high intensity storms in Concord, NH, the city's aging stormwater network is unable to handle the runoff from even 1-5 year storm events, which causes system surcharge and flooding issues on Federal and Lincoln St. The goal of this project is to analyze the current stormwater network and present system redesigns that will reduce localized flooding while meeting triple-bottom line considerations. There were three solutions to current capacity issues that were explored: additional pipes, green infrastructure with infiltration, and retention systems.
