Dr. Wadzuk is a good interview source for stories about water resources, environmental problems caused by stormwater runoff, and the research that is being done to better design and construct systems that will prevent, alleviate and resolve the conditions that engender water pollution, flooding, erosion and other challenges.

Phila. roofs are sprouting greenery
Philadelphia Inquirer online
Villanova researchers are looking at drainage scenarios, and learning that "green roofs often have more storage capacity than we are taking advantage of," said Bridget Wadzuk, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering. The finding could lead to new drainage structures that will bring down the cost "and make green roofs an even more attractive option for storm-water management," she said.
