September's Open Access Article

Check out the latest open access article in the ninth issue of the year, a special issue on stormwater: "Critical Review of Technical Questions Facing Low Impact Development and Green Infrastructure: A Perspective from the Great Plains " by Vogel, Jason R.; Moore, Trisha L.; Coffman, Reid R.; Rodie, Steven N.; Hutchinson, Stacy L.; McDonough, Kelsey R.; McLemore, Alex J.; McMaine, John T. 

According to Zhiqiang (Zack) Hu, the special issue's guest editor, "A critical review from Vogel et al. focuses on stormwater management on the Great Plains and Low Impact Development. To reach that goal in the Great Plains, the multi-disciplinary author team presents this critical review based on thirteen technical questions within the context of regional climate and socioeconomics across increasing complexities in scale and function."
