Ultra Urban Green Street Design Criteria

The City of Columbus, Ohio, is implementing ultra urban revitalization in their recently separated Combined Sewer Overflow Service Area. The City is looking to provide a leadership role in showcasing the use of green streets for stormwater volume and water quality treatment. During the process of green street design, the City realized a tier of unique design and construction criteria required for successful ultra urban implementation. The authors highlight the planning tools, analytical techniques and results from the City's Green infrastructure integration into their RiverSouth Urban Revitalization project. The planning tools include a design matrix process, incorporating the technical design criteria for green street construction with design liability issues specific to urban inner city conditions. The analytical techniques are for the areas serviced by the green streets, to ensure all stormwater volume and quality requirements are met. The results are the process of short and long term construction, operation and maintenance insights from the implementation and integration into the ultra urban environment.
