Grading Stormwater Infrastructure
Where are you located?
What grade would you give the U.S. Stormwater Infrastructure based on CURRENT Conditions for each category?
A - Exceptional, Fit for the Future
B - Good, Adequate for Now
C - Mediocre, Requires Attention
D - Poor, At Risk
F - Failing/Critical, Unfit for Purpose
CAPACITY: Does the infrastructure’s capacity meet current and future demands?
CONDITION: What is the infrastructure’s existing and near-future physical condition?
FUNDING: What is the current level of funding from all levels of government for the infrastructure category as compared to the estimated funding need?
FUTURE NEED: What is the cost to improve the infrastructure? Will future funding prospects address the need?
O&M: What is the owners’ ability to operate and maintain the infrastructure properly? Is the infrastructure in compliance with government regulations?
PUBLIC SAFETY: To what extent is the public’s safety jeopardized by the condition of the infrastructure and what could be the consequences of failure?
RESILIENCE: What is the infrastructure system’s capability to prevent or protect against significant multi-hazard threats and incidents? How able is it to quickly recover and reconstitute critical services with minimum consequences for public safety and health, the economy, and national security?
INNOVATION: What new and innovative techniques, materials, technologies, and delivery methods are being implemented to improve the infrastructure?
Definition of Smart Infrastructure
Stormsmart solutions include technologies, such as real-time monitoring and controls for stormwater practices and high-flow media filters for bioretention facilities, as well as innovative approaches in other areas, such as project delivery and funding/financing.
What grade would you give the potential US Stormwater Infrastructure if Smart Infrastructure were implemented?
A - Exceptional, Fit for the Future
B - Good, Adequate for Now
C - Mediocre, Requires Attention
D - Poor, At Risk
F - Failing/Critical, Unfit for Purpose
