This approach considers forces across the watershed not as separate problems, but as part of an interconnected solution. The upland, riparian condition requires daylighting rivers, restoring stream edges, and enhancing their capacity to store stormwater. In the urban core, green drainage corridors, the separation of combined sewer outfall, and floodproof buildings protect people and property. At the coastal edge, shoreline stabilization, berms, and surge barriers claim the water’s edge. Connections from the coast to the uplands promote the flow of people and water through the city.
