This presentation explores the challenges related to implementing recharge solutions in densely developed urban areas. Recharge of stormwater runoff is a low-impact development strategy that aims to mitigate the effect of development by returning a portion of the runoff from impervious surfaces to the local groundwater. In densely developed urban environments, implementing a recharge solution can be challenging. Often these projects are laden with several constraints, technical challenges, and significant risks associated with the recharge system. The highly constrained sites often contain urban fill with limited permeability, and it is difficult or infeasible to provide adequate storage for retention and infiltration. What is available for the site area often includes existing underground utilities, for which information is sparse, uncertain, and otherwise expensive to obtain with exploratory work. Several other factors, such as the proximity to existing structures and the effects of seepage on existing structural and waterproofing systems affect the available solutions and inherently involve significant risks. We discuss these considerations and methods for implementing recharge systems in densely developed urban environments.
