Managing Stormwater with the Use of Green Infrastructure in the Caribbean Region


With years of engineering expertise constructing green roofs and walls in Puerto Rico and the area, David Aponte’s presentation is focused on demonstrating the effects of implementing green technologies in existing buildings within the Caribbean region. A 30 million dollar green retrofit will be presented as the presentation case study.

The environmental aspects of the project consist in making it a near zero discharge facility. The project is located within the most important estuary watershed in Puerto Rico, and serves as an example of stormwater management focused on social benefits.
