This team created a Best Management Practice decision tree in order to provide sugestions of green stormwater infrastructure to any area given a few design parameters. The group applied the decison tree to the case of Stewart Avenue within Madisonville. Using a ranking system, the group was able to identify the most effective locations in which rain gardens and rain barrels may be implemented. Using the green infrastucture options as suggested by the decision tree, the team was able to redesign a section of Stewart Avenue. The proposed redesign could reduce the impact of a 10 year rainfall event to that of a 2 year rainfall event.
