Lassonde Masters student Everett Snieder took home the award for the prestigious Water Environment Competition at WEFTEC 2017 in Chicago!
Everett and his teammates redesigned Exhibition Place in Toronto using a combination of Low Impact Development techniques (e.g. green roofs and bioswales) to reduce the flood risk.
Results from this award-winning design demonstrate the need for on-going research in flood management in urban areas through the use of green technologies.
Professor Usman Khan will continue working with Everett to improve flood management in Toronto.
