Researchers at Mississippi State University are teaming with professionals at Portland’s BES to look at how Portland’s unique sizing methodologies influence site design and the overall design process. We are asking Architects, Civil Engineers and Landscape Architects in the Greater Portland area, who have utilized Portland’s SWMM in the process of designing and developing projects over the last twelve years, to provide feedback using the survey linked below.
The survey will help us to gain an understanding of how, and if, stormwater policies influence site design and how they could be used to establish similar methods in other communities that are in the process of establishing new, or updated, green infrastructure programs. The results will also be made available to the City of Portland for use in any future revisions of the SWMM to help improve the city’s current sizing methodologies.
The survey should take about 10-15 minutes. The researchers hope to get as much feedback as possible from all design professionals that work with stormwater design in Portland, and they thank you for your time!
