Temple University’s Center for Sustainable Communities (CSC) and Villanova Urban Stormwater Partnership (VUSP) is long-term partnership that combines the strengths of both research centers creating an interdisciplinary organization to demonstrate stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs), to conduct research, and to conduct a broad outreach program focusing on regional stormwater management.
The T-VSSI currently is seeking local examples of stormwater BMPs to add to its regional database to raise the visibility of successful sustainable stormwater management practices in the region. Submit your project here.
