White Papers

Over the past year, the Pittsburgh Collaboratory for Water Research, Education and Outreach has held a series of outreach meetings on the topics of green infrastructure, water quality, and flooding.  These meetings sought to identify knowledge gaps and best approaches for filling those gaps. 

The white papers posted here summarize and synthesize the outcomes of those meetings, as well as provide some suggested paths forward.  White papers on water quality and flooding are forthcoming.
