Climate Change and Urban Renewal

Premiered: February 26, 2018 | 0:04:19

Flooding and severe storms are one of the biggest worries for municipalities throughout the U.S. as they prepare for the effects of climate change. In Detroit, getting ready for changing weather patterns has prompted a creative new way to use the city’s vacant lots, most of them left from demolished homes. Through a joint project with the University of Michigan, Wayne State, Michigan Sea Grant, city leaders in Detroit and support from residents, an innovative way to deal with stormwater is flourishing.
