Temple University’s main campus (Temple) is part of a larger hydrologic system with various intricacies and issues.  By assessing the stormwater management on campus, Temple has the opportunity of reducing flash flood occurrences and the negative effects of runoff both on site and downstream.  Our team proposes synthesizing our understanding of natural systems and engineering design principles to research and implement effective stormwater practices at Temple.
