National Park Service
Dumbarton Oaks Park in Washington, DC faces excessive stormwater causing erosion and damage to key park features during storm events. Our goal was to propose a low impact solution to the National Park Service that would protect the historic park and manage stormwater. We interviewed park personnel and conducted research to understand the desired traits and feasibility of potential solutions. An ideal solution would blend into the park designer’s aesthetic vision and leave the cultural and historical value unchanged. We recommended a constructed wetland to manage the excessive stormwater in Dumbarton Oaks Park and estimated the design parameters for the wetland.
