AEES Bioretention OSU

Watch the winning video submitted, by our students, for the student design competition at the American Ecological Engineering Society conference in Lansing, MI (June 10-12)!

The objective of the 2013 student competition was to develop a creative 2-3 minute video summary of a stormwater BMP on Michigan State University campus that provided information about how this system works to improve water quality. The videos was required to contain information that provided the background engineering principles as well as the potential for how the general public can use a similar system or component to address water quality on their own properties. The target audience considered were undergraduate college students, visitors to campus and the surrounding community. The goal of the video was to not only educate the audience on these practices but also to inspire them to take action in creating stormwater solutions to improve their environment.
