GREEN STORMWATER INFRASTRUCTURE|
PRESENTED BY STEVE BURKE, PE
PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR MEETING THIS MONTH HAS BEEN CHANGED TO FEBRUARY 7TH TO ACCOMMODATE THE VALENTINE'S DAY HOLIDAY.
Ongoing land development, including increased density, taxes the capacity of existing public infrastructure and impacts our surrounding environment. As more impervious surface is constructed, greater amounts of stormwater are collected and conveyed to our rivers, streams, lakes, and oceans. Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) is a stormwater and land use management strategy that strives to mimic the natural, pre-disturbance hydrologic processes of infiltration, filtration, storage, evaporation, and transpiration. GSI mimics those processes by emphasizing conservation, use of on-site natural features, rainwater harvesting, rainwater re-use, and distributed stormwater management practices. GSI approaches reduce the amount of stormwater runoff leaving a drainage basin, both in volume and velocity, removes pollutants from stormwater runoff, and provides habitat. Steve Burke of SvR Design Company will present on GSI approaches, looking at benefits, code compliance, design, construction, and maintenance.
Steve Burke, PE, is a professional engineer registered in the State of Washington, with over 18 years of experience. Before coming to SvR, Steve worked as a project engineer for NAVFAC Northwest in Silverdale, WA, performing construction management. At SvR, Steve performs project management and civil design as well as construction management. Steve's current focus is project management for King County's Barton Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) project, which is under design. The project applies green stormwater infrastructure to remove stormwater runoff from the combined sewer, thereby reducing CSO events. Other projects Steve has worked on that applied green stormwater infrastructure include Seattle Housing Authority's High Point and Rainier Vista redevelopments, the Port of Bremerton's Kitsap SEED project, and the City of Bainbridge Island's Winslow Way Street Repair. Steve has a wealth of experience with permitting, low impact development, sustainable design, transportation, and utility design for a variety of private and public sector clients. His experience on highly complex projects has given him a strong sense on how to balance design vision with constructed reality.
