From We All Live Downstream

January 3, 2016

I was thrilled to be able to attend the final presentation of the Brown TRI-Lab (Teaching, Research, Impact) students on their successful project to bring green infrastructure to the West End neighborhood of Providence, R.I.

My imagination ran wild; I would walk around and envision small rain gardens or massive pedestrian refuges in the streets.
