Resilient infrastructure is a term referring to the ability of infrastructure systems to absorb disturbance and still retain their basic function and structural capacity. This presentation identifies three key disturbances of underground utilities (100-year+ storms, corrosion and soil movement) that disrupt the basic functionality of stormwater drainage infrastructure and offers ideas for improving their resiliency to prepare for the future.
