|Challenge Blurb:||New York City and the Municipality of Copenhagen are seeking innovative ideas, technologies, and approaches for stormwater management.|
|Challenge Description:||New York City and the Municipality of Copenhagen are seeking new and innovative ideas, technologies, and approaches for how stormwater can be successfully captured and treated to optimize benefits, reduce risks to public health, and promote co-benefits. Proposed solutions should consider the role water treatment or reuse can play in reducing flows to drainage systems and wastewater treatment facilities, in addition to conserving drinking water.|
While the ultimate goal of this challenge is to identify and pilot innovative stormwater treatment and reuse solutions, it is important to consider the opportunities and challenges for implementation. This could also include smart technologies for capturing stormwater. Both cities also hope to gain a better understanding of how to manage the contaminants found in stormwater that can pose issues to public health and the environment, comply with current guidelines, and overcome other barriers to achieve the desired benefits of proposed stormwater treatment and reuse practices.
