Historic flooding has forced Brentwood Bound to think about how to support infrastructure, the neighborhood and new growth. Eric Gruenenfeld, Director of Parks & Recreation at the City of Brentwood, Missouri (and 2021 Annual Green Building Showcase speaker) will discuss his experiences leading the initiative during unprecedented rainfall.
Brentwood Bound is a comprehensive set of solutions including a Deer Creek - Flood Mitigation project. St. Louis storms over July 25-26, 2022 dumped a little more than 9 inches of rain, the highest 24 hour rainfall on record. Michael Wysession, a professor of geophysics at Washington University as quoted by PBS stated, “The average rainfall for July and August combined in St Louis is 7.5 inches of rain and we got that in six hours.”
